    Jeez, you'd think they would have been embarrased that $2K binos fogged up.

    I too have had a couple real go arounds with Leica over two different pairs of duovid binos. They are less than desirable when warranty issues arise. Stick with Swarovski and the problems are gone. Leica is not a major player in hunting optics any longer and we could tell them why but it is a worthless cause.

    Have had nothing but good luck with Stiener glasses. Dropped a pair getting out of a deer stand once. Mailed them to Stiener, recieved a letter a week or so later stating that they were replacing my glasses with a new pair because the couldn't fix the old ones. Who else give that kind of service? Just wish they made rifle scopes.

    For three years in a row, I had problems with Steiner binos. They were the smaller folding models which I used for archery elk hunting. The hinges kept wearing out so bad that you needed two hands to hold them up. With just one hand, the hinged area would fold by themselves. After the third trip back to Gander Mountain, I switched over to Zeiss. There wasn't any problem at Gander, just the annoyance of having to return them again & again. All my optics are Zeiss, with the exception of an IOR Valdada scope on my groundhog gun.
