how much better are the HD meostars than non HD?   i found a deal on a pair of nonHD 10x42 but ive read about a yellow color bias and more CA than HD. was wondering if all the non HD meostars have this and is it much of an issue as im still considering a 8x42 or 7x42 non HD

They are still really good binoculars, especially if you aren't sensitive to CA.
 
They are a lot like the older, Swaro SLC WBs.

I'm not wanting this to be a demeaning comment, so please do not take it as such.  You've been tossing this around so much, beating it to death (not saying it's weird or unusual) lately.....just get the HD's and be done with it.  I've over analyzed stuff before, and realized even if , in this case, I bought the non HD and saved the money, I'd still want an HD and it would still occupy my mind and drive me nuts until I had one.  You will never regret buying the best glass you can afford.

I've found that when I settle for anything less than what I originally wanted to save some $, it eats at me in the long term, and I just end up selling the item I settled for and buying what I wanted in the first place. So, I take a hit when selling the "compromise" item, and it costs me way more than it would have had I just bought the item I really wanted to begin with.

The above applies when the cost differential is within reason. If the higher end item is twice the compromise item's cost but doesn't offer a compelling enough improvement in performance, then I may take a different view.

I'm one of those people who readily notices and is bothered by CA (dammit!), so I think the upgrade to HD/ED/APO/FL is usually worth it... to me.

FWIW: I have the HDs and REALLY like them.
Outstanding binos, if you can swing it I think you will be happier in the long run.

The problem is the OP wants both HD and 8x42 I think.
 
Tough spot because if he goes one way ... "Maybe I should have got the 8X42s," but the other way ... "Maybe I should have got the HDs."
 
I would just get the HDs ... if I didn't already have them.
