This 7×35 binocular is a direct competitor to Nikon’s Action EX 7×35 (see separate post, https://binocular.ch/nikon-action-ex-7×35-cf/). It features an almost identical wide field of view, good central and decent peripheral sharpness. Unlike the Action EX, it is not waterproof; however, it is significantly lighter. A very viable general purpose binocular for many applications.
