4.0 out of 5 stars Problem? What problem?!, 11 Aug. 2010
By 
This review is from: Olympus 12 x 25 PC I Silver Binocular (Electronics)
After reading the reviews for this item, I was concerned about the eye interval, that one reviewer found insufficient to the point that he had to return the binoculars. Nevertheless I decided to go ahead with my purchase. When the binoculars arrived I tried them immediately, having opened them to the maximum extent; and my first thought was: He was right, they are too small! But then I read the instructions carefully, and I realised that the problem was that I had opened them TOO MUCH, and the eye interval was more then sufficient. I can see why the reviewer was misled. Because these binoculars are compact it is not that obvious when one is overdoing the interval.
So in the end I found them very satisfactory, and I can voucher that the problem mentioned in that previous review is spurious: they are all right both for women as well as for men with widely spaced eyes!

I agree, on first inspection you think the eye interval is no good. You have to move them down and its perfect will fit the "biggest of heads" !

I'm looking for some binoculars for my grandson for Christmas.

1. Are these OK?

2. What is this Eye Interval, I've never heard of it so wouldn't know what's wrong.

Thanks in anticipation.

These binocs are excellent. There is no problem with the eye opening they are on a hinge so you can make them fit even the smallest eye spacing.

Thanks for the answer, that's no problem but I'd never heard it called that before.

Strangely, my username on many other things is Pugwash, I couldn't have it on here obviously as you have it, it's a small World!

Dear Mr Birch,

The Eye Interval to which you refer is simply the distance between one's eye-centres. If you look at the Olympus Specification on the amazon page, or even by going to Olympus's website, you'll see that these Olympus binoculars have an eye interval range adjustable from 58mm - 70 mm.
