    Russian Binoculars

    Russian Binos 8x32 nice size to hang on to, glass is clear, has a yellow tinge with makes animals stand out, which is the reason I bought them in the first place. Have upgraded to some alfa binos. Has 2 filter attachments that apparently penetrate fog. I once left them behind and backtracked 2 hours to find them. Great startup Binos. $160 posted Name:  20210326_093806.jpg

    @flock, now you're able to compare... are your alpha binoculars worth your extra money?

    The answer is Yes.
    This all started from buying a Z5 3x18. Took all my glass out at dusk, several times, to trial. The Swarovski pissed on everything by a quarter hour or more.
    Second best is a recently bought Vixen. Realised that my eyes, like Japanese glass.
    Have looked through Els in the past and wasn’t blown away. So the binos I have bought are older Japanese built Nikons HG-L 10 x 42 heavier than I’m just to, but they slightly out perform the Z5 Scope and at one third of the price of the ELs. Best I can afford. Financially Incontinent.
