For many binocular enthusiasts, binoculars from Meopta’s top series of instruments named “MeoStar” are among the most underrated in the market. Close to premium performance for an upper middle class price – this sounds almost too good to be true. But the MeoStar binoculars, which are very competitively priced, are rightfully considered very good, and this is also true for this 8×32 model. Compact, lightweight, robust, with a 30-year warranty – the Czech producer Meopta got its excellent reputation for a reason. A few years ago, the “B1” model was upgraded to “B1 Plus”, see separate post×32/ .
