Interesting. I find the 16x70s to be the most comfortable binoculars that I own ...But my eyes are quite the opposite of deep set, and the bridge of my nose is quite thin. That could explain it.
Yes, this is a well-known fact about the Fujinon 16x70s. Many, probably even most observers have no trouble with them. But there is a very large segment of the community for whom "nose relief" -- the popular term for this problem -- is a serious concern. I'm probably near the extreme end of that spectrum.
For me, the effective apparent field of view of the Fujinon 16x70s, when I hold them as close as I can without actually damaging myself, is about 35 degrees. No, I am not exaggerating; I actually measured it. The irony is that the whole purpose of those fat eyepieces is to achieve a wide field of view.
The moral of this is that binocular preferences are intensely personal. As far as I'm concerned, fit and feel are the very most important qualities of all for any pair of binoculars -- at least assuming that the binoculars meet a reasonable minimum standard for optical and mechanical quality. And no two people are even remotely comparable where binocular fit and feel are concerned -- there are just too many different variables to quantify. So the only way to find out if you'll like a given pair of binoculars is to try them.
