Canon 18X50 lenses?
Posted 16 October 2012 - 04:44 PM
I have however obtained a pair of Binoculars I'd been wanting ever since someone let me view through theirs a few years ago.
I know that Canon didn't supply lens caps for them and I have found a place to obtain front caps, but these one's are missing the eyepiece caps as well.
Does anyone know the size and/or where I can find suitable replacements?

I have seen and heard about using extensions as dew shields and may consider some. Do they affect (restrict) the FOV in any way?

For eyepiece protection, I have been using a Fujinon eyepiece rainguard made for the FMTR-SX 7x50. I have it tethered onto just one side of the strap of the Canons, and it is nicely loose enough to quickly slip in place. It is also deep enough that, although loose-fitting, it stays on pretty well. Much more convenient than separate little cups, and protects well in use. Have used this with both 15x50 and 10x42 Canons.
Objective covers I have not used. The 10x42 comes with its own, but the design is poor.
