NDhunter,

  The weight issue is germane for me as well.  As much as I love my Swaro 7x42B SLCs, their 33.5 ounces has become an annoyance now that I'm in my retirement years.  I've pre-ordered the ZenRay 7x36s with hope that they prove good enough for me to consider retiring or selling my Swaros.

  The other issue is that as I've aged, the max power I can hold steady enough to provide a relaxing view has decreased.  These days the highest I own is 9x and I find myself much preferring my 7x, 6.5x, and even 6x bins :)

There are a lot of excellent discussion on 7x36 ED2 on this thread.  To give a little background, 7x36ED2 is actually born out of collective suggestion on a discussion started by SteveC on different forum.  Thank you, Steve!

 
In the past, we always designed and produced products first and tried to convince customers that they should buy those products. Now, it is really refreshing to reverse the process and design a product based on what customers want.  From the orders we received, I am genuinly surprised to see so many people like 7x36 format. Again, I should not be surprised either since that's what many people want the very beginning.
 
Since there are many advancements in 7x36, we decided to extend those features to 8x43 and 10x43 formats as well. As a result, we end up having a complete line-up of new ZEN ED2 products.

Any chance you guys coming out with a really nice 6x32.  I am looking to add this.  I want a nice light, compact bino like the leica ultravid 8x32.   Mainly for bowhunting and low mag situations but there is nothing wrong with a 6 power.

In near term, there is no plan for 32mm yet. I sure will let Chris and this forum know if anything new is coming up.
