I am a U/K member and my query is regarding my Helios 15x70 binoculars. They seem very similar in spec to quite a few other similar 15x70 binos advertized in the United States. Can anyone shed any light on the subject? :question:

Hello Jeff,

I'm from the UK too and can tell you Helios 15 x 70 are exactly the same bino as Orion Little Giants.

Check the specs. out !

same dimensions
same weight
same (fully -multi) coatings
same BAK 4 prisms
same field of view
same eye -relief ( a terrible 8mm ! )
same finish

Just 60% of the price new if bought in the UK !!

Still available for around £139 if you shop around.

Don't forget --if you wear glasses , you'd be far better off importing Oberwerk 15 x 70s (2003 version ).

Regards --Kenny
