I am told by the wife that this should be my last bino,if I want to continue to enjoy her cooking.I'm up to six now,so may have to seriously consider her threat.
Anyway,having bought the Oberwerk 10x50 Deluxe about 6 weeks ago and owning the O.B. 20x65ED's,I wanted a tweener.I liked the 10x50 Deluxe overall package so much that I wouldn't be happy with anything less,even though I am kinda' tapped out of hobby funds at this point.
After pondering the lesser models around,I figured I had to have the 15x70 Deluxe....They arrived today and I am really glad I stayed the course.I'm not going to go into too much technical stuff,but I can say that these really are "Deluxe Binoculars"!
The build,fit & finish and aesthetics are absolutely first rate.....Optically,I find it hard to believe one can do meaningfully better anywhere close to this price.....I'm sure I may be a bit off here,but this gives you an idea of how impressed I am with these binoculars.
I mean..."The overall package"....You get a fantastic,supremely well built binocular,an L bracket and a vault like metal case for $299.95.
A performance and condition report is included from Oberwerk and the packaging could withstand a nuclear blast......Well,almost.-
I took it out at 1:00a.m. and stayed out until 2:30 a.m.....It got a nice workout and asterisms,double stars all smiled at me......Saw two satellites too.
I fully realize I am rationalizing a happy purchase,but these binoculars are simply a fabulous product at a superb price.....Not too common these days.
Thanks for reading my post.
