I am thinking about getting a 70mm binocular.Thinking about a 70mm started a couple of weeks ago, on the La Palma crater at 2400m altitude where i met a 80 year old (!) Austrian gentleman in the middle of the night. He used besides a TSA120, a 15x70mm binocular. He invited me to take some views with his 15 x 70. Although he said it was a not so good instrument, i enjoyed the views a lot and saw things i can never see with my 10x50...and yes i saw immediatley it was not a very good instrument (CA, soft on the edge very stiff focus but light enough to hold in hands for a longer time).
Wel, in short: i want one too!
I already have a Nikon Monarch 8x42 (general use), a Nikon 10x50 ActionExtreme (astronomy) and for insects the Pentax Papillio 6.5x21...
My shortlist till now contains:
- Nikon 18x70
- Fujinon 15x70
Are there any others to consider? For example, what about those APM's like the APM MS 20 x 70 Magnesium ED APO or the APM MS 16x80 Magnesium ED APO.
I already own a solid and high tripod which i can use for a 70mm binocular. Budget: max 1600 euro.
Hope to read your thoughts.
