Oberwerk 12x60 LW Binocular Review
Posted 21 December 2013 - 03:13 PM
I was particularly interested by your comment on why they have difficulty in showing good daytime views. Could you try what is the effect of putting two cardboard tubes on the objectives as light shields?

As you point out, some of this is designed to slip past the less informed public, but I'd hope the folks at CN are part of a community that looks at these issues a bit more deeply. I think it would be valuable to accumulate a database of popular binocular models and their measured effective apertures and I'm willing to contribute measurements of my own equipment. I hope we can find some place to aggregate this information and that others are willing to contribute as well.

I tested mine at 59mm and exactly a 6mm Exit pupil. They are 10X60mm
I used both laser and Flashlight on aperture.
Funny thing is they came in an Oberwork case??
they were definately brighter than my Nova 7X50's
I got these from a friend he said the dealer he got them from had a special on them, He paid $59.00 for them.
They are Visioneer. I am telling you they are superb for what they are. I was set to buy something more expensive but I don't have any reason now.
I am confused over the case tho? John said that is how they came. Anyone know of these? had them? I would only wish they were 12x60 but at 10x they are nice to hand hold.

How was the collimation with the pair you received?

Excellent review. Would I be better off getting a 12x50 binocular in some other brand to get the same performance in a smaller and lighter package? Would I risk not getting the full 50mm for this size also?

Very interesting review. I have these same binos and love them, although they are pretty big. Loved hearing the info on the objectives and the limiting prisms. Ah, well. Just confirms how I always refer to these:
Oberwerk und Underpaid!
