I got the CF 7x35 Rochester Zephyr today. Excellent condition, and the optics are spotless. The focuser is pretty stiff, but I'm sure it will get better with use. Maybe I will leave them laying out on the sun for a while, and it will loosen up a bit.
Date code is X. Should be from 1952, I believe.
They feel great in my hands. They are fairly light, but have a solid, quaility feel to them. The FOV is nothing special, but the views are bright and focus is crisp. I do not see any color fringing, and so far I have not noticed any edge distortion. They appear to have coatings, as I can see a slight violet when looking into the objectives. Not a mark anywhere on the glass, and the insides are spotless. The black leather case is in super good condition.
So far, I am impressed. I will be giving them a workout in the next few weeks. And I will compare them to the IF 7x35's and the 9x35's I will have in a few days.
