Minolta 7-15x35 Classic II Zoom Binoculars Product Info

Classic II Zoom binoculars have many of the performance features found on expensive binoculars, but at an affordable price. Features like multi-coated optics, a long eye relief for eyeglass wearers, powerful zoom magnifications, diopter adjustment, and a 25-year limited warranty add up to exceptional, reliable viewing for years.

Powerful and Versatile Zoom Magnifications 

Minolta Classic II Zoom binoculars provide extensive zoom ranges up to which are ideal for a variety of activities ranging from nature/wildlife observation to bird watching to sporting events. Available in 7-15X or 8-20X, it's like having multiple binoculars to choose from at any given moment. At a low magnification you can survey the entire landscape, and then quickly zoom in on an object of interest. 

Multi-Coated Optics 

Classic II Zoom binoculars provide sharp, clear viewing with high contrast and brightness, so the images you see will be true-to-life. That's because they feature quality Minolta optics, multi-coated lenses, and large front-lens diameters of 35mm and 50mm. Minolta Classic II Zoom Binoculars provide crisp images even in low-light conditions such as outdoors on a cloudy day or in late afternoon. 

Long Eye Relief for Eyeglass Wearers 

Conventional binoculars with normal eye relief do not provide a proper viewing distance for eyeglass wearers, because the focal point of the eye is too close to the eyepiece lens. The result is an incomplete and uncomfortable "tunnel-vision" image when viewing with glasses on. 

Minolta Classic II Zoom binoculars solve this problem by featuring a long eye relief up to 15mm, which provides full-image viewing for eyeglass wearers. The rubber eyepiece cup is easy to adjust with a simple motion -- just fold back the cups for viewing with your glasses on. 

Quick & Easy Zooming 

Classic II Zoom binoculars have a newly-designed, rubber-coated zoom lever for comfortable zoom operation with a just light touch. This allows quick and easy zoom control without disrupting your viewing comfort. 

Improved Design 

For all-day handling comfort and a secure grip, Classic II Zoom binoculars feature a newly-refined neoclassic style which looks and feels as good as it functions. 

Diopter Adjustment 

Minolta Classic II Zoom binoculars feature an easy to use diopter adjustment dial that allows the user to pre-set the binoculars to his or her eyes' requirements. Diopter adjustment is independent of focusing and needs to be set only once for the user. 

Center-Wheel Focusing 

For following fast action, focusing should be quick, easy, and precise. Minolta's oversized center-focusing wheel can be operated easily with either hand, and allows you to quickly zero in on a subject or track moving objects effortlessly. Center-wheel focusing is quick and smooth even when wearing gloves. 

Optional Tripod Adapter 

For shake-free, vibration-free viewing for extended periods, mount your Classic II Zoom binoculars on a tripod, using Minolta's optionally available tripod adapter. 

25-Year USA Limited Warranty 

To make sure you're as happy with your binoculars years from now as you are the day you buy them, Minolta binoculars are warranted against defects in materials and workmanship for 25 years from the date of purchase.
