Bird Watching (UK) - - Bird The World -

The straight de­sign takes some get­ting used to, but makes fol­low­ing fly­ing birds much eas­ier. The fo­cus wheel is on the eye­cup bar­rel, along with the zoom, but they’re well sep­a­rated and easy to dis­tin­guish, and move smoothly and ef­fec­tively, if rather stiffly. Eye re­lief is an out­stand­ing 30mm, but it can be tricky to find and main­tain the right eye po­si­tion. The im­age pro­duced is bright, sharp and nat­u­ral, with very lit­tle colour-fring­ing or edge soft­ness, and field of view is fine for most needs, al­though in­evitably re­stricted around max­i­mum zoom. It comes with stay-on case and non-re­mov­able ob­jec­tive lens cover.
