Conclusion: We were interested the most in the transmission results – whether they really are in accordance with the producer’s promises. It turned out everything was in a perfect order and our result concurs with the Minox’s announcements. It emphasizes once again the advantages of Porro binoculars. The same result as the Minox was reached only by the Kowa, a much more expensive instrument.
Pros: solid and interesting casing,, comfortable focusing,, high transmission,, well corrected coma,, slight astigmatism,, low brightness loss at the edge of the field,, quite good whiteness rendition,, good quality of coatings and prisms,, good blackening and cleanliness inside the binoculars.
Cons: slightly truncated exit pupils,, distinct inner flares,, significant chromatic aberration at the edge of the field.
