I just bought another Hartmann Polerim, an 8x40 this time,superb optics yet again, I already have an 7x35 which is wonderful to use and a 6x30, both excellent, I am always impressed by Hartmann optics, considering they were pretty much a budget binocular of their time, far cheaper than Zeiss, Leica etc, but able to compare very favorably with the best. I would so love to get one of the compact series 7x35 or a bernina 7x50 or 8x60.
Just picked up a perfect Hartmann 8x30 Binoculars
Simply pin sharp! Do you know anywhere I can find more information on these?
Optics & condition are perfect & came with the original leather case.
Hartmann Wetzlar 117 Made in Germany - Bernina 8x30 Weitwinkel
Serial # 78760
I would certainly appreciate it...
I have a Hartmann 8x30 Porlerim Weitwinkel (Essentially, Wide Angle). Mine is badly fogged, so it will be visiting Mr. Suddarth sometime soon. It is my understanding that the Bernina is a newer model, with lens coatings. I don’t know whether the glass or construction was changed, but the Porlerim is exceptionally well constructed internally.
