    Better than Expected

    By Windragon Dan

    from St Petersburg Marina Florida

    Comments about Fujinon 7x50 FMTR-SX Polaris Binocular:

    These are very highly rated binoculars at a very dear price. We bought them to replace a 15 year old set of binocs for our boat. We were a bit skeptical that they would be worth the price, on arrival, we were delighted. They are wonderfully made. A throw back to optics we once saw in the last century. The brightness and sharpness of the images are astounding. Looking through the old binocs was like looking through dirty water. We are delighted. Worth every penny, and of course B and H prices them competitively.

      Comments about Fujinon 7x50 FMTR-SX Polaris Binocular:

      As a sailor I looked at these binos 10 years ago but although I thought them great I decided to buy cheaper - what a mistake. So after my second pair of "cheaper" binos failed I decided to get something that would last. So glad I did. I purchased the pair without a compass and the "feel" and "heft" of these is really good - they have the ergonomics just right. I can see details of buoys from much farther away - ie their color, shape, and lettering, and especially at dusk. I bought these for the quality and because I wear glasses and I've not been disappointed. My only peeve is that they don't come with a dedicated case.

      Comments about Fujinon 7x50 FMTR-SX Polaris Binocular:

      The Fujinon 7X50 FMTF-SX Polaris binoculars use porro prisms, so they are large and heavy binoculars (3.3 lbs / 1.52kg). I'd not want to carry them except on short hikes: I call them "car or boat binoculars".Size and weight aside, they're easy on the eyes and have deep depth of view (more on that below)— fantastic as far as viewing pleasure goes:The deep depth of view afforded by the porro prism design is a huge advantage— much less fiddling with focus for minor distance changes.The 23mm of eye relief makes them the easiest to use of any of the binoculars I tried.In dim lighting, these 50mm objectives can peer into dark corners.At under $600, these binoculars offer incredible value— image quality is as good as the Leica or Zeiss models, but they cost 1/3 - 1/5 the price.

        Comments about Fujinon 7x50 FMTR-SX Polaris Binocular:

        Well, I got these about a year ago from B&H or the other big retailer in NYC, I don't remenber, and I have to say I am not disappointed. This is a first class binocuar when it comes to fit and finish, and sharpness at the center of the image. Unfortanetely, I must admit that this is not a flat field binocular as advertised by its F moniker in the FMT designation. The image goes drastically out of focus towards the edges. Notheless, I'd still recommend this binocular to anyone who admires fine Japanes craftsmanship. Oh yeah, I got this in the new gray trim, which is not the same binocular as the original 7x50 FMTR-SX. I heard that the previous model was more flat field than the new one. I didn't have a chance to compare that, but I had a chance to compare the Fujinon 7x50 FMTR-SX to Nikon 7x50IF SP, and the Nikon SP binoculars (called ProStart by some in the U.S.) has great sharpness all the way to the edges. Simply amazing. The only thing that comes to mind is sorrow that such great products are being notoriously discontinued, probably due to bad economy. Oh well, what can we do? There's nothing we can do about this. Anyway, the Fujinon FMT-SX series is still being produced, and it's very fine equipment. Let's enjoy these while they last. Oh yeah, and the depth of field is incredibly deep on these from like 50 meteres to infinity, making the focus rings practially unnecessary.

          Comments about Fujinon 7x50 FMTR-SX Polaris Binocular:

          These binoculars have extremely high image quality. They are sharp, bright and clear. However, I also have a pair of cheaper Fujinon Mariner binoculars (about $150). For outdoor use, I can't tell the difference in image quality. I don't think that this is a negative for the FMTR-SX, rather it says something very positive about Fujinon binoculars generally. The FMTR-SX has a much higher build quality and are heavy. If you want high quality binoculars for casual use, the cheaper Fujinon may be a better choice. I don't think the big price premium is worth it.

          Comments about Fujinon 7x50 FMTR-SX Polaris Binocular:

          I have owned these binoculars for 8 years and I did extensive research before I purchased them. They are extremely sharp, and excellent for low light use and at night. I have been boating for over 50 years and I can not say enough good things about them. Yes they are expensive but you get what you pay for. The only binoculars that come close to this quality are made in either Germany or Austria. I would highly recommend the model with compass.

              My old ones have the smaller rear eyepieces but they're still one of the best purchases I ever made.

              Comments about Fujinon 7x50 FMTR-SX Polaris Binocular:

              These are among the best binocs for general boating use, with great light transmission, making them excellent in low-light conditions. I prefer them without built-in compass, but others may differ. They are a little on the heavy side, but that is a function of their high quality build. You can get cheaper 7x50s, but these are worth it for the long haul.
