If you are ever asked how you would rate the MeoStar binoculars, Meopta’s top binocular line (with model sizes: 8×32, 10×32, 8×42, 10×42, 7×50, 10×50, 12×50, 8×56 and 15×56), show them this 10×42 HD. It is vivid proof that not only Zeiss, Leica, Swarovski and Nikon produce very fine binoculars today. There have been debates about whether or not the design of the MeoStar satisfies current expectations for a sophisticated optical instrument, but there is no doubt about the optical and mechanical quality of the MeoStar binoculars. Since they sell at about half the price of a comparable German premium binocular, they are constantly underrated. And: Meopta still produces most of its instruments in-house – in Europe!
