Tell me about the Opticron T4 Trailfinder WP 8 (10) x 25 monocular (1 Viewer)


avis fanaticus confirmavimus
I want to purchase a budget monocular that I can throw in my purse or in a coat pocket for casual birdwatching while I'm at Uni, at work, or outside walking the dog. So far the best option in terms of size (it has to be less than 10 cm / 4 inches long), weight (preferably less than 250 g/8.8 oz), price, and quality seems to be the Opticron Trailfinder, but I want to read more reviews before I make a purchase. Do any of you own it? Is it usable for birding despite the finicky focus tab? Should I get it with 8x25 or 10x25 magnification?

Monoculars are not as easy to manage as binoculars, getting them pointed right and focused properly is a learned skill.
The 8x25 will have a larger exit pupil and thus be more tolerant of alignement errors than a 10x will be.
