54x2 kenko TC Pv

Inexpensive Kenko CD-20T teleconverter lenses assembled with SUGRU rubber/cyanoacrylate stuff to make a SWA 2x54 binocular. As they are, there is no focus adjustment, but they work great for anyone with normal 20/20 vision. Also, there is no interaxial adjustment - but the nature of the lenses will accomodate a bit of variability in your inter-ocular spacing.
Within these limitations, I find the performance of these is equal to or greater than my SWA Orion 2x binoculars. Indeed, the full field / edge sharpness seems better in the Kenko lenses.
