I started my Bino collection with Leupold Arcadia 8X42, then sold it for Nikon Monarch ATB. It was a improvment a little. Then I got a pair of German made Minox BL 10x42 by accident. I ordered a Jap made Minox HG 8x43 on samplelist, guess what, a pair of BL 10x42 showed up in the box with HG SWFA sticker on the case. I felt very bad, and being ripped off. Called SWFA tried to explain what happed, and try not sound like I was lying at same time was very hard task! Loco Staff at SWFA was very friendly and pro. 10 min later they called me back, they found the HG. It was in a BL case. Lucky no one was buying BL off the list Yippee. They would get HG 8x43 for $299!!!!! There are Nikon Monarch 10X42 ATB, Minox HG 8x43 made in Germany (differnt one), and Minox BL 10x42 made in Germany.

MIG BL is very compact and light weight compare to BL open bridge. They are a notch better than Monarch especialy in low light, shaded area, and contrast. But not so much at night.  Well HG is in total different class all together. Of course much more expensive, but worthy. I had wow moment with HG!
