Would you return these binoculars?

Postby oogachaka on Wed Oct 20, 2010 8:29 pm

I order a pair of bushnell's on the 15th.
They got here today, just like expected.

Ive uploaded a couple pics to photobucket.
On the left hand side(of the pictures) objective lens plastic surround...there is a little chip in the plastic.
On the other side there is a crack on the plastic surrounding the objective lens. The crack goes all the way through the plastic piece. The lens appears to be fine.

They work but I'm not sure if this will change the waterproofing.
Im thinking I'll just keep them instead of trying to get a different pair.
What would you do?

By all means, I would return the binoculars, if they are new. Even if the defects do not affect performance, you have a right to be completely satisfied with your purchase and I suspect that Bushnell would agree.
