Last spring I bought a pair of Zen Ray Ed2's in 8x43. Gotta say I got good advice and like them, however they are rather long. The weight doesn't bother me, but they are almost too long for my S4 lockdown harness.
 
I found the sightron closeout thread and was thinking of contacting SWFA to see what the Zen Ray's are worth and possibly getting the SIII 8x42's along with a SII Big Sky scope.
 
Has anyone used the sightron's or know how they would compare to the zen ray's, or know how long they are?
 
thanks

Mil,
 
I have two Sightron binoculars but they are the SII series, not the SIII that SWFA has listed. By the looks of them they are going to be longer than the SIIs but a little shorter than your ED2s.
 
I just checked Zen Ray's and Sightron's websites. The SIII 8x42 is 6 inches long. The ED2 is 6.5 inches long so the Sightrons should fit in your S4 harness nicely.
 
As for an optical comparison, I wish I could help. I haven't tried SIIIs. The SIIs are excellent binoculars though. The apparent brightness isn't quite as good as the ED2s but I am still quite pleased with their performance.
