One of the problems with the public is that we don"t get the chance to take a binocular apart like Bill and his young apprentice and judge it from a purely mechanical and engineering point of view.
The vast majority of us are pleased if we recieve a good sharp view,we might hit lucky and buy a binocular that might not be the best quality mechanicaly but the view is fine.
This is where care of the binocular really comes in,bumps and knocks will take their toll far more on a poorly made instrument.
The likes of us general public don"t get that chance that Bill and Co get so its easy to see why some people arent interested in the mechanical side of things.
Im sure they don"t appreciate a beautifully made instrument,a binocular to them is a very mundane thing.
Not to me though.
Steve.
