Remarks:

In a review from 2018, binomania.it characterized the 7×42 Imagic as “a valuable all-purpose” binocular. Opticron’s Imagic series consists of 7 sizes: 7×42, 7×50, 8×32, 8×42, 10×42, 10×0 and 12×50. The 7×42 model exhibits a nice image with relatively good CA correction and decent sharpness across a large part of the field of view. However, the FOV is not very wide, and the binocular does not give an impression of utmost sturdiness. Still, for its price, the Imagic performs respectably well, is waterproof and represents good value for money.
