In my tests, the BTX offered sufficient eye relief for eyeglass wearers.

I observe without glasses, but tried "for fun" to observe with my usual daytime glasses, but also with some relatively thick...

I am out on a 1-1.5 hour walk in the fields and woods every day (weekends 2hours) and always carry my binoculars (usually 7x42 or 8x42, occasionally larger) on the neck strap.

It is in the same price category, but for my eyes, in terms of optical performance - particularly sharpness/contrast and image brightness - I clearly don’t see it as competition for the Victory and...

I have never felt that side light affected the view negatively in the WX. I find the eyecups quite comfortable, despite their large diameter, but I never „squeeze them into my eye sockets“ ever (I...

Ahh, I had forgotten to mention that if you intend to use the WX free-hand style, you need to be working out - 1 hour out with the WX is like 2 hours heavy weight-lifting in your fitness club (Holger...

Price differences for the WX in different shops and countries appear sometimes hard to believe.
If I am correct, B&H quotes the 7x at roughly US $ 4‘500 - a very tempting price, indeed!!
