You didn't feel comfortable saying, "My friend Rancid"?
I knew I loved my Premier, nice to know it ain't just me.
And, surprisingly, as good as the Premier is, the Hensoldt is a little better. I spent about 2 hours this weekend looking through the Hensoldt, no problems, it is fantastic (and keep the weak eye open, it helps with the eye fatigue.)
I was tempted to say "my rancid friend Jeff", but chose against it
I will need to find a way to put Hensoldt and Premier together some time. Perhaps, I'll come up with something during the next round of comparing high end scopes.
Based on some preliminary experience with Hensoldt and Premier, both have their strengths. I suspect Hensoldt has an edge with its eyepiece (eye position flexibility an dmarginally wide field of view, lighter weight and low light performance (large objective lens for the most part). Premier has an edge in magnification range and greater depth of field, in addition to ZeroStop.
Bottom line, both are very nice scopes.
However, Nathan tells they will have something very new and very interesting at SHOT, but refuses to tell me what it is. I am sure Premier will have something as well.
We'll just have to wait and see. I already got my badge number for SHOT 2011 and I am checking out hotels right now.
