  • Conclusion: The list of pros and cons looks exactly like that of the 10x42 model which was assessed during our big test of 10x42 class instruments. Also the final result in the test was similar – small wonder our summary will have the same overtone. Once again we would like to point out a very good price/quality ratio, offered by the Olympus - this pair of binoculars is relatively cheap but very well-made at the same time and with good optical properties.
  • Pros: solid, compact and stylish casing,, good transmission,, good whiteness rendering,, excellent correction of chromatic aberration,, very low distortion,, slight brightness loss on the edge of the field,, good quality of prisms and coatings,, long guarantee period.
  • Cons: narrow field of view,, definitely too light areas near exit pupils,, a bit too narrow maximum IPD,, inner tubes should have been blackened better.
