I received the Swarovski SLC HD 8x56 binoculars at about 12 pm so I had time to use them in daylight and at dusk. What a spectacular pair of binoculars. The quality and optics are typical Swarovski perfection. Since I had the Swarovski SV's 10x50 I will compare the two. The SV 10x50 has a couple of advantages that being it is smaller and lighter and it has a slightly bigger AFOV which is flat if you like a flat FOV. For these reasons it has a slightly more immersive view than the SLC. IMO the SLC has many advantages over the SV. It is slightly brighter in daylight and way brighter in low light due to the higher transmission because of the AK prisms and bigger objective. I have never looked through a binocular this bright. In low light it has a "light Intensifier" effect in that the view is actually brighter through the binocular than with your own eyes. I have never experienced that before with any binocular. The SLC just walked away from my Canon 10x42 IS-L when it started getting dark. It was no contest. The SLC has much better flare control than the SV also because of better baffling. The SLC has the best flare control I have ever seen. Another strong point of the SLC is CA control. Although the SV is vey good the SLC is better. The SLC controls CA better than any binocular I have tried including the Zeiss FL. I wanted the 8x56 because of the advantages of the 8x magnification including DOF and steady view but I also wanted to see if there is anything to the theory that a large aperture moderate magnification binocular like the 8x56 has less axial aberrations. It is hard to describe but the on-axis view of the 8x56 has a clarity and sharpness that exceed any smaller binocular I have used before. It is almost like it is a more relaxed view because you are not fighting any aberrations. Kind of strange. Another advantage of the SLC over the SV is the focus. The focus on the SLC is perfect with NO stiction like the SV I had. Even the 10x50 SV I just tried at Cabella's the other day had stiction and was easier in one direction largely because it is a greaseless focuser. It is weird that the SLC has a perfect focuser and the SV does not or at least the ones I have tried. The new field case on the SLC is nicer than the old one Swarovski used to use. I highly recommend the SLC. It is an amazing binocular.
