Oberwerk Mariner 7x50 NOS new
      #5650172 - 01/29/13 12:08 PM

Just treated myself to a birthday pair of the above, they are in the clearance section on the web site,these are the earlier version NOS, I,m suitably impressed, no doubt the exit pupil is too big for my 64 yr old eyes however it makes for easy placement, they work well with my specs on and seem robust, can,t go wrong at $120,and a nice big hard case with a proper closure, no vecro which I find to be a pain in the rear as its always getting hooked up on the straps, DA.

These actually operate at an effective 6.7x42.
Excellent field sharpness,in part due to very narrow 6.3° field of view
remarkable resolution
extremely long eye relief

Thank for the info EdZ, so they are operating with an exit pupil of about 5.9mm,anyway for the money they are great, no night time use yet due to the weather, clouds, snow, fog and arctic tempretures, however the day time views are bright and crisp, keepers for sure,DA.
