6×30 used to be a popular format some time ago. Nowadays, this configuration seems to be dispappearing, which is a pity. The little Bushnell is one of the few left on the market; it’s optics and mechanics are acceptable for its relatively low price, and it has a feature that comes in handy for everybody who is looking for a light-weight and compact bino for his or her children: the IPD goes down to less than 50mm! The Natureview is essentially the same instrument, just „differently packed“, as the same size Vixen Atrek Light, see separate post: https://binocular.ch/vixen-atrek-light-6×30-wp/
