Need a good pair of versatile binoculars without worry about night surveillance or whether the deer can see them? It's hard to go wrong with a pair of these zoom binoculars.
Yep, ZOOM binoculars. You can have any magnification between 10 and 30 times, and the 25mm objectives gather enough light for a bright image at all zoom settings. Depending on magnification, you get a field of view between 177 feet and 108 feet at 1,000 yards, and you can focus as close as 17 feet. Weighing only 11 ounces, they demonstrate why Olympus is one of the big names in optics, even though the binoculars should fit in a jacket pocket.
. . . did I mention that they are stylish and attractive, which isn't a common feature for binoculars? Versatile, lightweight, easy to use, inexpensive; what are you waiting for? Are these the binoculars for you? Check 'em out and decide.
Not great, but not expensive
Pros: Small size. Works well at low zoom settings.
Cons: At high zoom settings the images do not line up together producing two images.
Other Thoughts: If you apply small twisting force on the binoculars you can get them to line up. There is probably an internal adjustment. I probably should have returned the item.
