I've looked and looked and looked for a pair of binos to fit my needs and the Minox HG 10x52 BR's seem to have everything I'm looking for.  Anyone have any experience with this particular model?  From what I've read, Minox appears to build a solid product with quality German optics - even though they are "Made in China".  At $900 they are on the pricer side, so I want to make sure I'm not spending money where I don't need too.  I'd love to hear some feedback from other Minox owners.

 

Thanks!

I don't own them, but, they are NOT made in China.

I was in contact with Minox in Germany and was told that their binoculars are all made in Japan.

I own a pair of the 8.5X HGs.  I think you will be very happy with them to say the least.  They have a narrower field of view than most, but they make up for it with excellent edge-to-edge sharpness.  I think the 10x52s are also less than 28 ounces if my memory serves me correct, which would put them about the lightest in their class.

 

You can get a demo pair for about $700.  Send me a private message and I will let you know where.  Unfortunately, the samplelist doesn't have any Minox for sale now.
