I own the SLC 7x42 and I use it for hunting...I may want something a shade brighter for last light. i had the FL 8x42 but it had a small sweet spot and off-axis it was blurry. is the 7x42 better in this regard?

The 7x42 also has a huge FOV but if the outer 3rd is blurry, what difference does it make. the SLC's entire view is a sweet spot.

so owners or previous owners of the FL 7x42, what do you like/ not like and would you recommend.....

Well I don't own the Zeiss FL although a friend of mine does and I have the SLC's.  His are brighter (a bit) but I do think the Swaro is better across the me FOV makes a big difference even over the slight edge the Zeiss might have in brightness.  We (as people) generally  pick up movement when glassing.  The flick of a deer's ear, or head movement ect..... so I like the large sweet spot on the Swaro esp with a lower power like the 7x42 .


Good Luck
