Papilio 8.5x21 vs. 6.5x21

  • Summary: The 6.5x is much more pleasing than the 8.5x. Two stars for 8.5x, Would be four for 6.5x. Keep in mind they are butterfly not birding binoculars.
  • Pros: Nothing like them for close focus. Tack sharp. Light weight
  • Cons: Severe chromatic aberation, Poor quality image for distance. Eye strain--maybe mine were defective.
