It’s good to see the world through nice, clean, modern glass windows, and it therefore stands to reason a nice pair of binoculars are a pleasure to look through for all the same reasons. For me, I use my binoculars every single day and on some days (when working on Ring Ouzel on Dartmoor for example) they will often be pressed to my face for a good 5-6 hours at a time – sometimes almost without a break.
Similarly I will often be using mine at the top and tail of the day, when light is dimpsy. So various considerations need to be considered, I want light-weight – as they’ll be around my neck all day, they need to be bright and clear and above all I need to not have to worry about them – they need to be life proof.more
