What's your opinion (tests?) of the Minox 7 x 28?

Hi

Very nice little binoculars and bright with that 4mm exit pupil. Note, however, that they are individual eyepiece focus (IF) binoculars. There is no focusing wheel. You adjust each eyepiece and then, once properly set, everything from about 20 or 30 yards to infinity is in focus. On the down side, everything under 20 yards or so is not in focus. Doesn't mean the binoculars can't be used at those short distances, only that you will need to refocus each eyepiece, again, for those shorter distances. In other words, for close distances, IF is not a practical, user friendly system. For mid range and long range work, it is a wonderful system. If that sounds like something for you, go for it.

Actually, I do like the sound of the that.
What other IF binoculars and spotting scopes do you carry?

Nothing in a spotting scope, but try the Steiner Military/Police series and Fujinon binoculars for IF binoculars.
