Ok, I see what you are saying. I do the same thing but I've always did the right eye first, not last. I wonder if it makes any difference. It's clear when I look through with both eyes.

It would have to make a difference. You are getting each eye clear on the same focus setting. If you did the right one first, two faults would exist :

1) which would have priority to focus the right eye ; the eye cup adj, or the main focus

2) now, left eye is out- nothing to adjust to correct it.


This why main focus clears the left eye first, then the right eye is brought to clear focus using the dial under the eye cup.

The larger the objective lens the more light it will gather to be able to see in low light conditions. I went with 8x42 for size and weight reasons while still staying in the optimum exit pupil ratio. Long treks into public lands prompted me to go with a smaller set of binoculars. If that wasn't a concern I would have gone with the 10x50s.
