Olympus 7X21 PC III Classic Binocular – Review:
AS GOOD AS MUCH MORE EXPENSIVE BINOCULARS!
I own a large number of SLR cameras and lenses, a $2,000 Takahashi telescope, full size Nikon Extreme EX binoculars etc. So I am reasonably familiar with good optical equipment. I also bought the 2 Pentax Papillio binoculars (returned one since it’s overpriced for what you get, gave one as a present to my nephew). I decided to give a try this model, as cheap, throw in the backpack binoculars. I was very pleasantly surprised with the quality, both optically and mechanically. Are they as good as the Nikon full size binoculars? No, of course, but they are reasonably close. I feel they equal the Pentax Papillio binoculars at 1/3 of the price.
Update 2/6/2011 My brother was so impressed with these binoculars he bought a pair himself.
