Description: The Barr & Stroud Sahara 12x50 is a rugged go anywhere binocular. Focuses down to just under 2.5m making it perfect for both naturalists and birdwatchers; the binocular convey a great 12x magnification.

The Barr & Stroud 12 x 50 Sahara features rugged construction combined with brilliant optics. They are waterproof to a depth 1.5m of water for three minutes, a lot of time to get back them if you have fall them in a stream or pond. This needs a high degree of mechanical superiority in the construction of the binocular which is evident as soon as you pick the binocular up or make use of the super smooth focus control wheel. The Barr & Stroud 12 x 50 Sahara binocular is filled with nitrogen gas which keeps water out and in addition stops the optics distress from internal fogging in unfavourable weather circumstances.

Fully multi coated optics of Barr & Stroud 12 x 50 Sahara binocular and BaK-4 prisms resulting in bright contrast rich images even in low light conditions. Twist up rubber eyecups make them convenient for people with or without eyeglasses.

Hi, I'm new in the forum. Can I post here? I have some questions about coating.
I was looking for a good binocular and I saw one with the following especification:
Objective lens: 50mm FMC Fully coated. What means FMC in this specification? First I tought it was (Fully Multy Coated) Fully Coated, but I'm not sure about it.
Would anyone help me solve this doubt?
Thx

Douglas,
Fully coated refers to a lens being coated with a single layer of metal oxide coating. The "fully" part refers to the entire lens surface.
"Multicoated" means multiple layers of coatings.
"Fully multi coated" can refer to one lens or all lenses on the device - which should be the case.
Virtually all modern optics are at least multicoated, for good quality chose fully multicoated.
the 50mm or 50 after a number and "x" refers to the objective (front) lens size, and is the most important "hard" spec; it will dictate how much light can enter your binos and eyes, and how big and heavy the tool will be.
The most important factor in optics is quality, optical quality and build quality, which is difficult to quantify so you need to test personally or rely on reviews and reputation.
