        Comments about Olympus 10x42 EXWP I Magellan Binocular:

        I use the Olympus EWP mostly to look at trees, birds and ships on the sea.

        The images are bright, sharp and the colors are perfect. It is easy to focus and to adjust to my eyesight.

        It is very solid and robust and fairly compact, compared to my previous 10x50 Porro binoculars.

        It is somewhat heavy and requires a steady hand if the objects are extremely far, because of the high magnification. The straps were a bit hard to put in place.

        Overall, these are excellent binoculars for a very reasonable price.

        Comments about Olympus 10x42 EXWP I Magellan Binocular:

        These are a very good pair of binoculars. A little on the heavy side they feel solid and well made. Because of the slide adjustment (not click stop) they should be very comfortable for folks who, like me, wear spectacles. The rubberised coating along with the imprints for thumbs make them easy to hold and focus. The focussing knob is easy to move, though not too easy on my pair. Standard dioptre adjustment is there for the right hand lens but not the left , which is normal for binoculars in this price range. They are said to be waterproof but I can't vouch for that never having got them wet. As far as I can tell the glass used is not ED or quite to ED standard.

        If you look carefully in bright light you can just make out the green tinge on the objectives of multicoating, the interior of the binoculars is nicely darkened.

        Looking through them in daylight the view is very bright, focussing is precise and it's easy to make out shading and colours (of birds for example). The `three D' effect is excellent and very noticeable on close objects. I noticed slight purple fringing only off access, i.e. I was unable to see any fringing on objects I focussed on in the centre of the lens but it was apparent to the sides, but very faint and in no way effects the quality of the view through the bino's which is very good indeed.

        They also work well in low light, I tried them out at night, there was a very slight purple fringe around the moon, which was nearly full, not bad at all. Stars were pinpoint for about 75 to 80% of the objectives and only became seagulls at the very edge of the view. However, because of the weight I would not recommend these for astronomy unless some form of stabilization is used. As far as I have been able to tell there is no standard tripod fitting so one would have to jury rig something.

        Where these binoculars really shine is during daylight, they are great for birds, planes etc., and because of the 6 degree FOV both of the above are easy to track when in motion.
