The Olivon PC 8×42 were the perfect choice for a customer visiting the Northern Optics weekend outlet at the Waters` edge centre at Barton Upon Humber.
He was looking for a high grade set in the £200 range as an upgrade for his current Pentax 10×25 binoculars. After trying a few sets of 8×42 and 10×42, the set they chose was the Olivon PC 8×42. All the binoculars felt similar and had were around the same weight, but in the customers opinion the Olivon PC 8×42 gave less of a colour cast that he found in the others.
From our point of view, this is not the first time a customer has placed the Olivon PC 42mm binoculars ahead of higher spec ED optics. This proves the point you should not judge all books by their cover, and there are some fantastic non ED binoculars that perform just as good as their low dispersion alternatives
