Help with ID/year?

It's billed as a 10x30 but I can't find a photo match with the full bridge.
Thank you,

I'm in the second category Steve. Understand the 3 axis basic concept and even once had access to a collimator, but it was always a 50/50 proposition on whether the binoculars themselves survived...

Thin cloud layer here on southern California coast. Watched for a while with B&L Mark 28s, then switched to Trinovid 8x32s. Not much moon showing right now.

Pleasant to deal with and well organized on the repair end. Mine turned out to be not repairable so they worked with me to find the best replacements.
I give their customer service five stars.

Trinovid HD 8x32 & 8x42 first impressions

Wow!
I've owned a lot of binoculars over the years, but none as good! Clarity, contrast, tack-sharp focus, view to the edge, ergonomics, and overall feel are over the moon on these two beauties.
I...

On driving vacations, I often use a pair of B&L Legacy 7x35 EWAs while wife is at the wheel. In the right conditions, it can be quite enjoyable, ranging from sneak peeks to extended views.

Thanks, fazalmajid. That's a solid explanation. I'm familiar with the dientsglas designation. If someone can confirm the DF designation, I'd appreciate it.

Jring, what does the DF stand for please? I have a set. Thanks.
Glove box binos for me are Obie 6.5 x 32 LW at less than $70 so not too worried if they get dinged, scratched, or stolen.
