best compact binocular

Postby opticsplanet.com on Thu Nov 04, 2004 7:21 pm

Hello, I have been using 10x25 compact binoculars for general use including birding and nature watching worldwide,this include Indian and African safaris,but due to breakage I must now replace them. we are walkers in all terrains and I prefer a centre dual adjustment with a right eyepiece adjustment also. I sometimes wear spectacles. What do you advise? Thank you

Hi

Optically, the best compact I have seen so far is the Nikon 10x25 Premier,
http://www.opticsplanet.com/nikon-10x25 ... ulars.html. This is Nikon's best binocular. It has a diopter adjustment that consists of a separate wheel near the center hinge.

Leica is also coming out with a compact version of their Ultravid. It will
be available in about a month and promises to be an excellent glass. In the meantime, their 10x25 Trinovid, http://www.opticsplanet.com/leica-10x25 ... -case.html is available for immediate shipment.

We can also recommend the Swarovski 10x25 compact,

All of the above are lifetime quality binoculars with excellent warranties.
You will never have to buy another binocular if you choose one of these.

Leica, Zeiss, and Swaro are the best. If you want to save a few bucks you can get high quality offerings from Minox and Docter.
