The illusion 7×50 WP binoculars were the preferred choice when a visitor came to the Northern Optics weekend display at the Waters` Edge visitor centre. They needed a good set of 7×50 binoculars for use on the boat, due to them being easy to hand hold and focus. The main factor in the choice was the quality of the optics, that gave excellent views in low light conditions. Contrary to belief, we always recommend testing binoculars in low light conditions as this is a great test of light grasp and contrast in testing conditions.
The customer was not put off by the weight. These are rubber armoured . nitrogen gas filled and come with a comfy flotation strap. Just the job when out at sea. Highly recommended
