  • Conclusion: What can be written in the test’s summary of such a pair of binoculars? Is it really necessary to tear apart a piece of equipment which costs just below 100 Euro? The price itself already indicates that the results cannot be good; accordingly the binoculars’ performance is such that you could have tormented it long and hard. We don’t intend to do so.
  • Pros: sensibly controlled astigmatism,, moderate coma,, prisms made of BaK-4 glass.
  • Cons: very weak transmission,, badly corrected chromatic aberration,, high distortion,, noticeable light fall-off on the edge of the field of view,, truncated exit pupils,, ugly and smelly rubber on the padding,, focusing wheel has some slack,, sharp image from the distance of over 4 meters.
