Excellent quality for compact binoculars
on 26 March 2014
I work shifts on the short sea trade and like to carry my own binoculars which need to be lightweight and fit in my pocket. These are therefore ideal. I hadn't originally planned to order the "pearl white" but since the normal silver was out of stock it didn't matter. Since using them the pearl white has actually proven to be very useful since it makes them easy to find if I put them down on the dark ship's bridge. Although 8 x 21 isn't the optimum for use at night these perform very well and far better than the cheaper 8 x 21's that I've owned in the past. For daylight use the very good image quality is as would be expected from the Olympus brand. The construction also seems robust. The only odd point is that the securing neck strap is only secured to a single point on one side of the binoculars rather than the usual double side securing. Only a very minor issue but it takes some getting used to.
