Minox BV 8x25 BRW

From Howard in New York:

Considering its price, I expected this supposedly phase-coated binocular to be better than my aged $60 Nikon 8x25 Sportstar roofs with their non phase-coated prisms. No -- these are in some ways worse. Not only are they not any sharper, but their focusing depth is very shallow, making one have to constantly refocus for the slightest change in distance. The size, weight, and wide field of view are its only good points. Not recommended, period. Fortunately Eagle Optics' return policy and speed of crediting my account is exemplary.
