    Fujinon 16330586 Reviews

    7x50 FMTR-SX Polaris Binocular is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 19.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I should of bought these day one 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.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fujinon 7X50 FMTR-SX I've had a pair of these binoculars for over 20 years and never been disappointed. When one of the attached lens caps straps broke I decided to get new pair of binoculars. After researching available military spec binoculars with the same power I decided to order another Fujinon pair. They have served me well and were half the price of my next choice. Later I contacted Fujion about the broken attachment strap on the old lens caps and was able to order replacement parts after over 20 years. Simple to instal. The old pair are in the house and the new pair will be in the vehicle.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from As good or better than Zeiss or Leica 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.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better than Expected 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.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great quality but not worth the price 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.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from BEST BOATING BINOCULAR MADE 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.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Long Time Satisfied User I bought my first FTR-SX (or close to that) in 1987 and use these on a small sailing yeacht. There is no question that this tool has saved my bacon on board at least twice (and I mean hazardous conditions). Were I to do it again, I'd go with as close to these as possible, but it would certainly be Fujinon.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Choice of Professional Mariners Used these on my ship, hands down the best bino's I've ever used. Don't bother with the cheaper fujinons. Not that they're bad, but once you've used this superior quality glass you'll never want to use anything else. I don't like using the reticle ones because I have a huge head and when i spread out the binocular, the reticle tilts and just clogs up the view. These don't have those but don't get them if you are thinking about it. Great bino's worth the money.

    Will this one float in the water?
    Asked by: Boris P.
    7x50 binoculars generally won't float on their own, having a lot of heavy glass, but many, such as the Nikon OceanPro, come with a flotation neck strap.

    where can I buy new fold down eye cups for 7x50 FMTR-sx binocs?
    Asked by: Bill B.
    I called Fujinon. They referred me to their repair center who sent a set of Cups for about $30. They just slip on. Sorry I don't have the name or address anymore.
