I know for a fact the newer pair of binoculars I have had had lens caps already on them (already bought).
My OH's - he bought lens caps seperately. His bins are older than mine - and both our pairs are not cheap pairs.
I have to fess up that the current two sets of binoculars we have are Vikings by the RSPB - and we had them for years.
One thing we have never bought in a case to protect the binoculars. hmmm!!!
If I have a complaint, I would say I find the binocular eye cups a pain, as they never...
