Are there any good reviews on these new binos?  Any comparisons with the other Alpha binoculars?

I like this comment from the bird forum:

For starters, I'll admit I'm grumpy this morning anyway. And now this.

If the edge astigmatism is improved, you'd hope they'd have the sense to tell us about it. The eyepiece is certainly only average-fancy looking. In playing the transmission card, they've stuck with the AK prisms which have defined Zeiss for years now, but keep the objective focal length short, making it that much harder to achieve good field correction. Maybe they will surpise me, but it will be just that.

There are still Cro-Magnons among us who don't mind being stiffed a bit on blue, despite its undoubted benefits in low light situations. More blue than the FL would be like adding hops to IPA. 

I do reckon it would grip nicely, but am not used to the look of all that unsupported barrel. Does this design strike anybody else as flimsy looking? I actually think the Conquest HD looks better.

I'm left thinking, WHY am I supposed to want this, since I already have an FL? Of course, for that very reason, I'm biassed--I'm trying not to want one! So far, though, it's easy.

I would like to see these binos side by side to the FL's.
