I have had my Leica 8x32BA trinovid binoculars for about 4yrs and only used them a handful of times. The optics are just great not to mention the fit and form are right on. The only concern I have is the Focus wheel seems to be stiff compared to other binoculars (different brands) It just seems like the wheel should rotate with extreme ease almost fluid. Can anyone offer any info, I really hate to send them in for repair but I find myself not wanting to use them for shear lack of poor focus.
Is this a problem that is common to the older BA's or is their something I can do at my level.

The focus wheel on the Leica should be smooth and easy to operate yet a little firm.  Sometimes there is too much grease on the gears.  Try running the focus all the way one direction and all way back for a few minutes.  Sometimes this will spread the grease out evenly and make the focus smoother.  If that does not work, send them to Leica and they will adjust them for free.

I have two pair of Leica a BN and a BA.  There is no difference in the focus wheel.  Mine and every other Leica that I have used has had a very smooth but precise focus wheel.  That is one thing that I love about them.  If yours is stiff, then you probably need to send them in.
