Olympus 8-16X40 and case

 

I haven't really scrutinised them as they are a Christmas present and I didn't want to unwrap them completely. Howver, they look really good and will make a terrific present and value for money.

Olympus 8 16x40

 

I use these in my garden and can find the bird easier on magnification 8 but then go to magnification 16 to study it. I have not used binoculars much, in the past, but still find these easy to set-up and use. Much better than my old 10 X 25's.

The only slightly bad point is that I cannot find how to set the binoculars further away from my eyes. I believe you are supposed to be able to adjust the distance from the eye, but I haven't found how. I just put my spectacles on and that does the trick.
