Just thought I would reveal these on hthis thread just in case anybody missed it?
Not mine or anyone I know, in fact I would be keeping it quiet and bidding on them if I didn't already have a pair of these.
I found them to be excellent and these look NOS, made by Zomz around the clate 60's to mid 70's I guess.

Sammyboy for these I'd go with the buy it now option, I mean they even have the original box!

Just bought a pair of Tento 7x35s, excellent sharpness and view with only a slight yellowy tint. Were £20 inc. postage off Ebay, even come with their original case and amber/orange filters!

Posted a quick picture to my Mobypicture (Twitter pics) account if you want a peek :)

I own (somewhere in the house, I can't find them!) the same pair labeled as Zenit (mint, in the box too), and ****..they are good! Very good! Colour and depth are excellent, contrast is excellent, CA is nearly non existent (none as far as I can remember, but that was years ago), pincushion is near zero, with just a hair (apparently this is the way it is supposed to be due to lens grinding issues (flat prism vs curvature required for magnification-which leads to being part of the CA issues- a mismatch can be the source-as it is in zoom binos, IIRC)-which is the way it should be...and collimation was perfect. Mechanics are solid, etc.
