I am in the market for a new pair of hunting binos and it is between an older pair of EL's 10x42s or newer SV 10x32's.

I do a lot of mountain hunting so I would love the weight/size of the 32's but I am a little concerned that I might be loosing too much light by going down to a 32mm.

Has anyone done a low light comparison between an older EL and a newer 32mm SV?

That is a pretty significant exit pupil difference, relatively speaking. The 42mms will be brighter in really low light.

Of course, the 8X32 version would be much closer in brightness to the 10x42. a 8X32 SV might suit your needs pretty well.
