    Cons: None

    Pros: Bright to the edge. Easy to hold steady even though 12x. Wide immersive A.P.O.V. Slight warm bias which i like. Sharp almost to the edge. Exceptional build quality.

    Summary: Very nice Astro Binocular, giving spectacular views, second only to my Zeiss 15x60 B.G.A.T.

    Cons: Heavy

    Pros: The image sharpness and feel of these old binoculars is hard to beat.

    Summary: I bought a Nikon tripod mount that works well on the center focus rail and wouldn't be without these. Excellent for astronomy and tripod mounted nature watching. Gotta' be a hunk to carry them all day in the field. Love them.

    Cons: Weigh a ton. No tripod thread. Relatively poor eye relief

    Pros: Beautifully made. Excellent optics. I like the chunky feel in the hand. Bought recently second hand. 32 years old but still in pristine condition.

    Summary: To get this performance from a new pair of 12 x 50 binoculars would cost about four times as much as I paid. The old porros have much more character as well in my opinion

    Cons: None

    Pros: The best all round binoculars I have ever owned...I have 3 different Leica bins but still use my Spezial Nobilems to this day.

    Summary: Fabulous Optics and feel like a real pair of binoculars, these will out perform many of todays top makers....including some Leica. I would feel lost without them.

    Pros: WIDE FIELD OF VIEW. INCREDIBLE PERFORMANCE.......WERE DESIGNED 35 YEARS AGO WITH A VERY SHORT FOCAL RATIO.

    Cons: Color is on the warm side, bit yellow. Also a bit heavy and bulky

    Pros: Clear image, not as sharp as my 12x50B Dodecarem, but nice nevertheless.

    Summary: For its size, this is a good desgn binocular. Hard to reach the focus if you have smallish hands, but a very nice optic.

    Summary: A good wide field of view, bright to the edges due to the large prisms and very good in low light situations.
