The TZK 10x80 has multi-coated eye pieces! Very nice. With that big exit pupil, it overcomes that distinct 20% prism intrusion. (My "shoot from the hip" guess)

Hello. World is realy very small:-) Why?
Because it's my ex-binocular ( TZK 10x80) few weeks ago Luca's friend Paulo bought them for him:-) I must say very good work.

This question was asked before, probably ( via PM?). Again, do these have the yellow tint which afflicts most east European or Soviet/Russian optical glass?

I have had several of them..There were manufactured in Russia , Poland and Czech..

In my opinion production from Poland and Czech have best optics much lower yellow colour.

It's a yellow..Just a old optics. Seemed other binoculars quality like 10x80..

But if we are talking about Rassian version..Yes indeed there a lot of yellow colour.

p.s
Gordon ask a Luca or Piergiovanni.
