Remarks:

This is quite an expensive little toy, but its optical performance should not be underestimated. In many situations, the Mikron might actually be preferrable to an 8×20 bino, not the least because a 6x can be more easily handheld than an 8x, and because the Mikron’s 140m field of view is wider than that of any 8×20 on the market. However, you need to learn how to best hold it; once you master that, the Mikron provides a lot of pleasure (except for its sub-optimal stray-light performance).
