Pros
  • Depth of field, Brightness of image, ease of handling
Cons
  • useless soft case
I bought this having for many years used a pair of Russian 12x50 Iin fact made in East Germany by Zeiss). The brightness of image is remarkable compared to others I tried (Opticron, Nikon - though I use Nikon scopes). Likewise, there is excellent depth of field and I have never experienced any real difficulty with focusing. The ergonic grip is also excellent, making it possible even to use such powerful bins one-handed (e.g. when caught suddenly on a bicycle). I have had excellent after sales service (e.g. free replacement rubber lense covers when I had lost one, arrived within 48 hours). Also, I wear glasses and the eye-relief is really fine and sturdy. (My wife does not and if we share the pare, it is also easy to move from one to the other.) Strongly recommended, whatever the price

  • Price!
Love the "open barrel" design. Makes handling very easy compared to the opposition.
