Remarks:

Almost as famous among hobby astronomers as the Fujinon 10×50 FMT-SX2 (see separate post), the 16×70 was for many years the large binocular of choice, unless you wanted even better and could afford the Nikon 18×70. In recent years, more models of size 16×70 or 16×80 have come onto the market, almost all made in China. The best ones now feature ED (extra low dispersion) glass and, while cheaper, outperform the Fujinon 16×70 in terms of CA correction; the Fujinon, which does not feature ED glass,  does show a bit of color fringes, but is otherwise still a wonderful instrument in the hands of an amateur astronomer or for long range daytime observations.
