In Zeiss’ entry level line “Terra”, you find models with the configurations 8×25, 10×25, 8×32, 10×32, 8×42 and 10×42. Except for the 8×25 (which is made in Japan), they are all marked “Designed by Zeiss”, but have a small stamp “China” somewhere on  the binocular body. While the pocket models 8×25/10×25 perform well even compared to the more expensive segment of their market, the x32 and x42 models are clearly middle class instruments with solid mechanics and quite decent ED optics; in their price range, you would find competitors with greater sharpness and contrast, but many users will also place value on the blue “Zeiss” logo and the customer service that stands behind that name.
