Just curious if any Leopold employees use this site?
My wife's dad worked there for many years, like 15 years as an engineer. He said he hated to do the Shot Shows as hunters always asked him dopey questions about Leupold at his booth, like how to pronounce "Leupold". He admitted to me the European optics, primarily Austrians and Germans are better. Swarovski, Zeiss, Leica, Schmidt Bender ect, but not so much better to justify their higher prices. His favorite binoculars he always carries are the Swarovski 8-40, awesome! Nothing even close in clarity, nor nothing close to their $1,800 price tag.
