    Cons: Appaling build quality. - Rubber eyecups fell apart in a few months. - Central hinge loosened in a year; it just folded if held singlehanded; sent to Opticron for repair within warranty period. Loosened again in a week, folds if used singlehanded. - Diopter setting dial went funny after two years making the binocular unable to operate.

    Pros: Very light and small, you don\'t notice you are carrying it even after long walking hours. Optical quality for such a small device. Comfortable eyecups (no blackouts).

    Summary: Mind you this rating relates to the 8x32 version, not the 10x32. Nice binocular on the shop (not the cheapest, around or in excess of 200 €), nice to use for a while, but extremely disappointing quality (the binocular basically falls apart). Really disappointing at this price, being used occasionally. In a couple of years a 200 € binocular becomes unusable even after having been to Opticron for repair.
