          Comments about Vixen Optics 6x16 Multi Monocular:

          i'd recommend this to anyone looking for a good, compact means of magnification. i tried the 8x and the difference in magnification wasn't worth the extra length to me. the 6x is compact and has stayed in my every day bag since it's purchase. i purchased with the intent to use indoors at museums, to view architectural details, and to in general, bring things closer to view. the kids can even use it.

          - i think the finish could be nicer - rather than rubber banding for grip, i would have liked some form of knurling or texture on the barrel, or nothing at all.
          - though it's compact, it would be nice if it had a standard 1/4 thread for mounting to a tripod or attaching to other camera/optics accessories.

          Comments about Vixen Optics 6x16 Multi Monocular:

          I am in a portrait painting class, I use the monocular to see the details in my models face. I was amazed at the clarity the unit gave me from 15 feet away. I would be missing so much painting information without this new tool. I only wish there were something that would steady my hand.

            Comments about Vixen Optics 6x16 Multi Monocular:

            I've often said that my eyes have more issues than National Geographic magazine. As a result of same, I'm constantly on the lookout for things that can help me make out detail at a distance a little bit better. It was, in fact, an eyepiece very like this that allowed me to get through the last year of high school and most of university without having to sit three feet from the board while notes were being written. I lost that eyepiece a long time ago, though, and have been on the lookout for one like it ever since. A few years ago, I found an inexpensive and functionally similar one that I still have.

            Then I came to B&H and found this one.

            What's better about this than the one I already had? Well:

            1) It's much better-built. This thing feels solid, and the focusing action on it is smooth.

            2) It's better optically. The eyepiece is nice and bright, and high-contrast. Focusing is accurate, and the image is razor sharp across the whole eyepiece.

            In short, it's just, well, better at everything it's supposed to do.

            I suppose it's not perfect, though; the place to attach the lanyard is on the front of the eyepiece, so that as you turn the front to focus you wind the lanyard around the eyepiece. You could, I guess, always turn the part closer to your eye to focus it, but that means taking it at least a little ways away from your eye during that time.

            That, though, is a minor glitch in what is otherwise a great product, and which I cannot recommend highly enough if you're looking for a high-quality visual aid.
