I tend to agree with the previous comments. If it means anything to you I am in a bit of a bind right now. I have four high end bins and must part with two of them shortly....holiday bills and all. Two are Meoptas and two are Leicas. I am actually having a tough time deciding which to sell and which to keep. One day I am entirely in favor of selling the Leicas and the next the Meoptas.
Yes, they really are that good. I believe they are entirely comparable to the Swaro SLC line and better in some regards. Take a look at their 8x42 model. It offers a 411 foot wide field of view or approximately 7.8 degrees...and with very little edge distortion to boot! That is huge and larger than any other premium 8x42 roof prism out there including the upper end Zeiss, Swaro and Leica models. Brightness is better than the Trinovids, comparable to the ELs and slightly less than that of the FLs. Contrast is probably the only issue that I would not rank as highly as the other European models.
I seem to remember reading something that the Meostars utilize MB-550 lenses. I am not sure if that speaks to the quality of glass or the coating utilized in conjunction with it but thought I would mention it regardless.
On a related note, do you think there would be any interest in the 8x32/10x32 configurations of the Meostar line?
