I started this topic because it just keeps popping up. A few here have had issues with Meopta’s Meostar’s quality control. I say a few, that’s it. One member’s here opinion says do not buy a Meopta Meostar because you will loose xxx many dollars. So what’s the deal ? My take on all this … you see many, many more of the top European brands, even Nikon being resold here on this forum. Does this mean these are not as good as the Meopta ? , definitely not. Though some here would argue they are equal to being in the same club, having Alpha quality Optics and I am one of those. Mine is a personal opinion. When it comes to liking and using one particular brand of binoculars over another it’s all personal. When it comes to reselling any brand of binocular, it’s also personal regardless of resale down the road. Excepting 30 to 50 percent off one’s original purchase price or more is personal. I am the first one to admit when it comes to resale, I have excepted prices way below what I paid but I have never said do not buy any one brand due to a loss. Here on the for sale section, the percentage of Meopta’s Meostar binocular being sold compared to all others is quite low. This does not mean the Meopta’s are better than any others that have sold or being sold here, only that those who own a Meopta Meostar will not part with them regardless of their resell value.
