Would these binoculars survive if they are fully submerged?
Asked by: Aghy
It depends on depth and duration. It would probably survive a very brief and shallow dunking. But unless they rate it for immersion, you have to assume water would enter.

Why does it say "close-to-midrange observations"? Does it mean that it is not recommended for infinity focus (e.g. stars)?
Asked by: Arash
The Nature DX 8x42 binocular's near focus is 6.5 ft (2 m) which is ideal for bird watching. While it can focus at infinity and be used for stargazing, larger aperture binoculars with higher magnification would be better suited.
