Tiny pocket binocular with 5x magnification. It ranges somewhere between Nikon’s even smaller 6×15 Mikron and the 4×10 DCF, but seems a bit expensive for its performance: It is quite sharp at the center of the image, and the off-axis sharpness is actually amazingly good, but the image appears somewhat dark, and it has a slight pink tint.
