Does it help if I tell you that you won't regret buying a pair?

Not really, but I still appreciate your comment.

My bino pairs include some Tak orthos. It has taken 4 years since buying the binoviewer to get to this line up, there's been a lot of buying and selling along the way. Tried TMB SMC, Brandons, UO and BGO as well. They are all good eyepieces. The Tak orthos are a step up from the run of the mill abbe's, they are close to the ZAO II. They have great coatings and very low scatter and are extremely sharp. I have a thing for good looking field stops, and the Takfield stop is the sharpest of any eyepiece I have used. Certainly way better than the rough UO and BGO stops, and even the ZAO. The build quality and design of the Taks is also a notch above all the other orthos.

If anything, I'm surprised how cheap they are for the overall package you get.
