  • Summary: Very clear optics. This is my second pair of this model! My xwife has the first...I have used them Elk hunting, wildlife veiwing in Alaska and in three National Parks. Not to bulky or heavy. I used them with a bino suspender strap which kept them close to the chest. Can't go wrong for the price!

First class glass

  • Summary: I found these binoculars by chance at a store in Wales. I am familiar with the brand - recalling the Minox mini 'Spy' camera. These impressed in the shop and later in their first outing - a two hour walk with the Minox slung around my neck. They are tough, but light weight so no neck strain after the walk. The optics are bright and sharp and very easy on the eye. I felt I could use these for hours.

Excellent performance and value for money

CC Smith, Amazon

  • Summary: I used to be a Leica owner, but I got tired of both their weight and poor close focus. During one of my periodic moaning sessions, I was recommended these by an excellent birder and lodge owner in Costa Rica who, like me, had tried to stay faithful to Leica, but was giving up the struggle ... Leightweight and with optical performance to match the Leicas - and good close focus as well - these bins have not disappointed at all. Highly recommended.

  • Excerpt: Качество оптики, по моему мнению, просто замечательное. Была возможность сравнить при покупке с аналогичными по параметрам (8х42) и находящимися в ценовом диапазоне 10 - 15 т.р. моделями Olimpus, Pentax и Bushnell. Остановился на Minox - по четкости изображения понравился больше всех.
  • Pros: Изящный внешний вид, легкий, удобно держать в руках,четкая яркая картинка, герметичный, газонаполненный. made in Germany
  • Cons: Очень неудачные колпачки для окуляра - плохо держатся, а для объектива - вообще не понятно зачем их сделали - не держатся совершенно - потерять элементарно, да и их конструкция - отдельные на каждый объектив, да еще с разрезными проушинами - не позволяет закрепить их надежно хотя бы на ремне. Ремешок какой-то не очень - вроде тряпочки. От солидной фирмы хотелось бы немного посолиднее.
