Thanks for the info, will check Maven
You can never go wrong with swaro binos. But you can come close at lower price points. El is gold standard but the SLC HD is great glass. Personally I'm all about price points. If I had unlimited funds I'd own 10x42 el range and a 15x EL range(if they ever make it) but I don't so I shop price points.
When you get to lecia, ziess, swaro, meapto and now maven it just comes down to compermise per dollar amount.
Maven is a new company putting out really great glass, especially at that price point. Down sides are availbilty to compare(direct to market company) and company history(very new).
Vortex in my eyes on their upper end was king of price point but they have crepted up a bunch in the last year. Still a good deal but not the great deal they use to be.
