You could also buy these from K-Mart here in Barrie Ontario, the ones I looked at were made in either Korea or Hong Kong, the only German sounding bino that I came across that were worth their price and peformed very well were the Carton Alderblicks (spelling?), made in Japan and they came with a solid hard leather case, Dave
Funny you mention this as I came across some Adlerblicks a few years ago, the 10x50, and just love them.
Also , I'll always remember Barrie ON as one of my best Binocular buys. In a pawn shop, they had a display case with high intensity lights shining on some jewellery , watches, Kurt Muller, Tasco binoculars, etc. Down on the floor below, with some hammers and drills , was a set of Bushnell Rangemasters. I picked them up, pristine, though a bit dusty, and in perfect alignment, no price marked.
I went up to the shady looking guy behind the counter who had a huge Moustache and I think a black eyepatch, but I could be imagining that, and said in my roughest voice, "How much for these old binocs I found on the floor?" Notice how I didn't say 'Bushnell' as for some reason, many Pawn Shop people seem to put 'Bush-Nell' up there with Zeiss! In an even rougher voice he said , "Ten Bucks" . I slapped a tenner on the counter, and off I went, yelling "Start the Car" as soon as I got outside. Us rough guys don't bother with this sales tax thing!
