ENJOY!
I like mine a lot (despite the lousy edge sharpness, which is not much of an issue unless you mount the bino).

In good seeing conditions, and with a very good instrument, even 20x will clearly show the separation between the ring and the planet body. E.g., Oberwerk 20x65 or APM 20x70 ED have done the job for...

My take on the Blaser Primus:

Or in short:
quite a good binocular, but way too expensive.

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...

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!!

Canon Switzerland / Service experience

In late March, I dropped my 10x32 IS - I placed it on the table, but was not careful enough, so due to its "round" body it rolled over and fell on the floor.

When inspecting it, everything looked to...
