Delivers Optical Perfection, Whether Day or Night
This particular model offers a 10x magnification and a 50mm objective lens diameter. As it sounds, the 10x magnification produces an image that appears as if the user were 10 times closer to their subject, while the objective lens diameter refers to how much light can be gathered to form that image. While for daytime use a lens diameter of 21 to 25mm is useful, for night-time viewing something between 35 to 50mm is recommended. Therefore the 50mm specification here indicates excellent suitability for low light visualisation.
Also worth considering for low light work is the exit pupil. Here that is 5mm, which for 10x50 binoculars is arrived at via 50 divided by 10 = 5 exit pupil in mm, so beyond the 2-3mm which is generally thought of as being suitable for daylight use. Another thing to take into account is the field of view, which here is 114 metres, and is defined as the width of the viewable field at a distance of 1000m from the point of observation.

Given there high magnification and my desire to use them for astronomy I was conscious that even the slightest movement would ruin any space viewing so decided to buy the following product to attach them to my regular DSLR digital camera tripod.
It is the best £10 I have ever spent.
The Olympus website and google search does not give much information on how to attach these binoculars to a tripod but it is possible and incredibly easy with this attachment.
having done some reading on optics and there inherent problems I am aware that there bins have a VERY, VERY, slight discolouration on the very bottom on the image, nothing to worry about but it is there in a tiny (I mean minuscule way). As I am an amateur this does not bother me but nice to know what has caused it. From my limited reading it is something to do with the manufacture of the glass. It seriously affects less that 1% on the image and can only been seen if you are looking for it, as I was!Read more ›
They are excellent. Very clear picture. Very little distortion. Smooth focussing mechanism. This is the first set of binoculars that I have used which give a 3 D impression when in general use.
Good value for the price. I think if I was going to spend more I would have got one of the canon image stabilised ones.
They arrived quicker than i expected, 1st thought as i reached for the box; how heavy?, needn't have worried, less than a kilo, perfect.Quickly had them unpacked and outside.I have a bit of a view from the back garden and as i scanned the distant hills, i couldn't believe my eyes, the detail was great even a couple of miles away, blurred fields became rows of turned hay, dark spots became copse of trees with houses, even the number of windows became apparent, as i focused further afield a large pylon, which i didn't know existed, stood dramatically as the sun glinted of the arms, and that was all of 8 miles away. passing jets tail logos became clear. However the best was yet to come.......
I couldn't wait to try them at night. When i got a clear night i turned my focus on the moon, WOW, craters became sharp and the glare had gone, superb. Jupiter was in view, what was a bright 'star' became a round planet shape, even i thought there was a slight outline of it's rings, maybe thats being hopeful rather than precise.
Anyway to conclude;
1. excellent product/price for beginner
2. weight not an issue but the strap could be a bit padded especially on the back of the neck (very minor issue)
3. works well day or night
4. feel robust and well made
what are you waiting for.... get them NOW!!
BTW 06/11/11...took a look at Jupiter and was able to pick out three moons...amazing...
I use these binoculars for wildlife observation, astronomical viewing and birdwatching. My previous pair, by a different manufacturer, were slowly falling apart - and I decided to buy some new ones. I spent quite some time considering my options. As I say, the price of these made me sceptical. Yet, upon first looking through them I knew I'd made a good decision.
These are sturdily built binoculars, with a good weight (without being heavy). They come with an Olympus case, and four lens caps. If you're after a pair of high quality binoculars and yet don't want to pay £hundreds, I suggest you buy these! They're excellent.
