Fujinon FMT-SX 7x50

29 January 2012
  • Conclusion: Let’s start by comparing the tested binoculars to their most serious rivals – a chart, published below will make it easier. You can notice that among the whole group of sealed Porro devices produced by the most renowned manufacturers the Fujinon provides the best field of view. It is also one of the biggest pairs of binoculars in this class and definitely physically the heaviest – those huge Porro prisms and a solid casing have to weigh a lot.
  • Pros: huge, solid casing of sound workmanship,, sensational transmission,, very good colour rendering,, low astigmatism,, very well-corrected coma,, imperceptible distortion,, sharp image almost to the edge of the field of vision,, no brightness loss on the edge of the field of vision,, good blackening and cleanliness inside inner tubes,, high quality prisms and coatings.
  • Cons: a bit truncated exit pupils,, the area around exit pupils a bit too light.

7x50 Fujinon FMT-SX

27 August 2008
  • Summary: These Fujinons are among the best available. However, they still have limitations. Even these wonderful binoculars exhibit curvature of field, thus mediocre edge performance, reminding me of the Leicas.(excellent, but not quite perfect) Contrast was better than the cheaper, but superb 10x50 Ultraviews in direct comparison, and sharpness was superb, in fact, I could almost make out as much detail with these 7x50s as the 10x50s, which says a lot for 3x less power.

Expert Review

27 January 2012
  • Summary: Na koniec kwestia ceny. Obecnie za Nikkora AF-S 85 mm f/1.8G musimy zapłacić prawie 2000 zł. To znacznie więcej niż za także amatorskie modele 1.8/35 i 1.8/50. Wyraźnie tańszy jest też konkurencyjny Canon EF 85 mm f/1.8 USM. Trzeba jednak pamiętać, że Canon to dość wiekowa konstrukcja (choć wciąż robiona w Japonii), a Nikkor to nowość.
  • Pros: świetna jakość obrazu w centrum kadru,, bardzo dobra jakość obrazu na brzegu kadru APS-C/DX i pełnej klatki,, niewielka poprzeczna aberracja chromatyczna,, znikoma dystorsja,, mała koma,, niezauważalny astygmatyzm,, niewielkie winietowanie na matrycy APS-C/DX,, cichy i skuteczny autofokus.
  • Cons: spora podłużna aberracja chromatyczna,, słaba praca pod ostre światło,, wyraźne winietowanie na pełnej klatce.
