Traditional style binoculars with good performance. Maybe not as wide a field of view as many similar priced 8×42 roof prisms, but the image is pleasantly bright and clear. Edge quality is a little disappointing, but on the other hand the centre of view image is superb with almost no false colour whatsoever.
The porro prism design makes handling very easy. The focus wheel is large enough to be used with gloves on. The eye cups are a little stiff to fold down, but by far not the worst I,ve come across.
Low light performance is very good, making them a good starter choice for wide field astronomy.
Build quality is excellent. Complete with basic soft case and neck strap. There are cheaper 8×40 porro prisms, but the Olivons come with a much longer warranty for peace of mind
Update. Now discontinued
