Excerpt: This binocular was intended for general use, I had a Nikon before got it broke and the new Nikons are not good anymore. This Minox is rugged, but my first problem was that it didn't adjust well to my pupilar distance, mine is smaller than the adjustment you get in this binocular, and this doesn't happen to me with others. The second problem, when you look thru you get a narrow vision, like if the internal walls interfere with what you see.
Summary: Excellent pocket binocular, for the price probably the best available. I nomally use a Leica 10x32 binocular but for convenience the MINOX unit is superb. Quality construction and the optics are almost as good as the Leica, for a fraction of the cost. Highly recommended.
Summary: Great brand, excellent build quality. Most importantly fit in the jacket pocket and not too imposing around the neck so I take them everywhere unlike a larger pair which would be cumbersome to carry and more often than not left in the car or at home. Crystal clear optics and more than sufficient for the average user. I would endorse some of the reviews I have read on line that these are top compact binoculars All in all a great set of binos for general all round use.
Summary: Build quality is very good. In daylight , the image is bright and very sharp. The size is what I would call slightly above pocketable size, They look and perform like much more expensive binoculars. Very pleased and I would recommend these binoculars.
Summary: I was looking for a small, light weight, but quality pair of binoculars, and these certainly fill the bill. I'll be taking a trip to Borneo this summer, where getting up close & personal with varied wildlife will require some clear and relatively powerful binoculars. Their lightweight portability should be of real benefit. I'm looking forward to trying them out under more testing conditions than rural Hertfordshire at present!
Summary: I have owned a variety of binoculars over the years: Praktica, Swift and Pentax. I was looking at the Leica brand but found them too expensive. My Father used to use Minox film cameras and I remembered the quality of those, so I started researching their binoculars. I have only just received them today (within 24 hours of ordering) and I am really pleased I chose them.
