The shape, color and intelligent design of this new monocular are directly evocative of the legendary MINOX spy cameras. And it again embodies the qualities that made MINOX famous: ultra compact dimension, first-class workmanship and convenient operation. The robust metal body houses brilliant optics offering a superb imaging performance. For example, at 6x magnification and a close focus range of 1,5 m, butterflies can be observed exactly in their immediate surroundings. However, the MINOX MD 6 x 16 is also useful for viewing distant objects. Even fast-moving objects will not escape the unusually large field of view of 140 m. Equipped with a neck strap and a practical case, the MINOX MD 6 x 16 is the ideal companion for all those who appreciate lightweight equipment but do not want to miss any of the action. Thanks to the easy one-hand operation, the telescope can be used for almost any occasion - at sports events, on vacation, at the opera and the theatre. Less

Cons focusing can be a bit tricky until learned
Recommended it? Yes

How many times have you wished that you had something in your pocket that would allow you to view something either closer or in greater detail but would be small enough that you could take it anywhere and use it easily and not attract a lot of attention. Well, that's exactly what the Minox... Read full review »

Recommended it? Yes

There are not many full size binoculars cheaper than these and yet they provide a surprisingly good image. The field of view is exceptionally wide at 8.2 degrees which makes it easy to locate birds in flight. The centre of the image is sharp and pleasingly contrasty. Half way between the centre and...

Cons Mid-Level optics. Kind of a cheap carry case.
Recommended it? Yes

I picked up a pair of Nikon Egret II binoculars when visiting the Virgin Islands last year. I had previously researched binoculars as I've always wanted a pair. I happened to see the Egret IIs in the VI for a nice price, so I picked them up. I was immediately impressed.

I knew that I... Read full review »
