Six pairs, but that will get thinned out sooner or later:
* Nikon Action 8x40 - good all-round binoculars
* Tasco 440 7x50, JB-160 - excellent for astronomy IF I wear my contact lenses, can't focus to infinity using uncorrected vision
* Hensholt 8x56 roof prism - old German quality binoculars I recently acquired, I haven't done a full evaluation yet.
* GreenKat 10x50 extra wide angle, JB-133 - the smallest, lightest pair of 10x50s I have seen. Recently acquired, I haven't done a full evaluation yet.
* Infact 8x40 wide angle, JB-56. Unusually wide eyepieces. Stunning, superb for astronomy and can focus to infinity with uncorrected vision. Very compact but heavy, with blackened prisms and a built-in tripod attachment socket. The one definite pair of keepers.
* Carl Wetzlar 10x50, Japanese but no JB number. Candidate for cannibalizing for telescope eyepieces.
Last week I declined an offer to buy a lot of over 50 (closer to 100) older binoculars, mostly Japanese. No doubt some gems (my Infact, GreenKat and Hensoldt came from the same batch) but I'm not a collector, and it would take a long time to sort, clean up and sell them off piecemeal.
