I think what's happening here is that everyone likes a 7x and there are so few around. I tried to convince myself that these were good value for money too, but in reality they are disappointing. I...

Why did you move production of the Imagic TGA to China but keep the same price? They don't feel as good as the Japanese version and the view isn't as good.

My implicit response from that particular comment from Frank is No sh*t Sherlock!

Pete,

Its certainly a very appealing binocular. Are there any plans to bring out a higher end 7x42? Could the Imagic VHD resurrect the Imagic BGA SE 7x42?

Pete,

Can I ask what the rationale was for introducing a 7x42 in the Discovery range? Its a welcome, if a little unusual, move.

Opticron Discovery 7x42

Looking at the Opticron brochure, it would appear a 7x42 model is coming in the Discovery range. This is a very interesting and welcome development. I am very fond of the Discovery model. Does...

I am very lucky as I bought a pair from a friend for 50. They were never used outside. He only used them to look out the window and look at books on his bookshelf.

I also was fond of Dougie.

I thought it was very cheap looking. The view was decent but not great. The Imagic VHD is better.

A very disappointing binocular. I compared it extensively to the Countryman HD and there was very little difference.

The new Imagic is a much better buy.

Well after using them for two weeks now I think Opticron have produced something a bit special for the price point. They are excellent binoculars and well worthy of the price tag.

I haven't noticed any glare. I've used them in very strong sunlight. In fact, I'm heading out with them soon to some urban parks and it is currently extremely sunny. Will report back later.

I think these look very interesting. I'm glad Opticron have increased the field of view. The 0.2 difference isn't much but I think, for me, 7.2 is the minimum I'm comfortable with.

It's an exceptional binocular. Retails for around 89.99 but was a steal at 49.99.
