I've been comparing the meostar 10x and the swaro El 10x tonight at cabelas along with doing a lot of reading on multiple forums. I actually compared the cabelas euro instinct which is just a rebranded meostar at 530pm, right around sunset looking at a building with some landscaping bushes around it approximately 500 yards away. I could hardly tell a difference between the two binoculars. If anything, the meopta appeared just slightly brighter but the swaros had zero distortion around the edges while the meoptas had an ever so slight ring. I'm just not seeing a 2000 dollar difference between the two. What am I missing? Everyone said the difference would be obvious in low light but this evening didn't make anything obvious. Any insight would be greatly appreciated.
