Winner of 'Best Compact Binocular 2015'
"By utilizing a really condensed optical design this incredible Opticron Discovery has the same outer dimensions as many of the larger true compacts yet is way smaller than most other mid-sized binoculars with similar sized objectives.
Thus the real beauty of this is that the combination of the larger 32mm objectives and the really high quality glass and coatings means that you still get the same higher performance of high end, mid-sized optics (when compared to a true compact), but in a package that does not look out of place in a line-up of these true compacts! Unless size is critical, it is a definite win-win situation.
In fact if you compare the Discovery's dimensions (LxHxW) of 4.3in (10.9cm) x 1.8in (4.6cm) x 4.6in (11.7cm) with that of a genuine and excellent compact like the Swarovski 8x25 CL Pocket Binoculars (winner of this award in 2013), with it's dimensions of 4.3in (10.9cm) x 1.8in (4.6cm) x 3.9in (9.9cm) you can see that it is only the width where the Swarovski has the advantage in terms of size!
Add to this 17mm of eye-relief, a very wide field of view (393ft @ 1000yds) and a minimum focussing distance of only 3.9ft then you have a go anywhere, take anywhere binocular that excels in most situations, but is great for birding, wildlife, travel, outdoor sports and butterfly, flowers and other close range observation!
