    Cons: The traditional leather case was somewhat impractical as a field case. It protected the binoculars very well, but one of the strap attachments broke off and I have been unable to find anyone able to fix it. Also, I was never clear on what the yellow eyepieces were supposed to be used for. They did not come with any documentation, even when I bought them brand-new.

    Pros: Excellent optical performance in a compact package, and very well made. A very good balance of size, weight, and power, they have been ideal for backpacking use. They have stayed clear and crisp, despite usage in a variety of extreme weather conditions including blistering hot desert and sub-zero northern winters.

    Summary: I purchased these during a trip to East Berlin while I was in the Army in the early 1980s. Until I retired in 2017 and bought a pair of high-end Swarovskis, these were my primary personal binoculars for all purposes. They were an outstanding value for the money, and have stood the test of time. I will still probably use them for backpacking, when weight and space are at a premium.

    Cons: None

    Pros: Excellent lens quality and colour representation. Lightweight and robust. (I have dropped these quite a few times and they have needed only one service in 40 years of ownership.) Waterproof due to the roof prism design.

    Summary: They were expensive when I bought them in 1981 but significantly cheaper than those built on the other side of the wall, but they have proven to be great value. I am still using them almost every day, even in wet rainforests.

    Cons: Slight yellow cast to image,more noticable in low light. Slight pincushion distortion at very edge of field.

    Pros: Very sharp image,snaps into focus well,CA seems minimal and considering no phase coating nice and bright,agreeably surprised on this one! Built like a tank,although a bit "agricultural" in apppearance..I quite like this.

    Summary: A really good bino and for its age(1980) a great performer,fits in a jacket pocket and seems really tough..I wont be parting with this one!
