Remarks:

Well built and finished and shaped and almost like the iconic Nikon E II, the Adventurer is very comfortable to hold and use, but at a price of roughly $ 100, you can’t of course expect upper class optical performance. Still, the Adventurer brings a lot to the table for its price: robust mechanics, a wide FOV, good central sharpness etc. provide an overall very satisfactory user experience, just slightly spoiled by the narrow swet spot and blurry off-axis image. The Adventurer’s smaller “sibling”, the 6×30 Savanna (see separate post, https://binocular.ch/opticron-savanna-wp-6×30/), is better here, but offers a much narrower field of view.
