Thanks Don, good to know and I'm pleased with their weight. Also good info on the Vixen SSW- I wonder how they work at f4.1 with the PCII?

The SSWs should be OK.  Just be aware of the fact they have a lot more spherical aberration of the exit pupil than the Type 6 Naglers, which are their direct competitors.

And slightly less well corrected for lateral field astigmatism than the Naglers, though this varies across the line.  There is a good review of the SSWs here on SL.

Over here in the US, the SSWs are actually more expensive than the Naglers, but that may be different in the UK.

Did you measure it Don? Out of curiosity how much astig shows in the Vixen SSW? I'm looking at those as well but...

For what its worth I did a report on the SSW's a while back Gerry:


Gosh - where did those 5 years go ! :shocked:
