Thanks for the advice, I have emailed (last night) the Minox importer here in Australia so I might see what sort of a response I get from them first.

Cheers,
Magnum

I inquired of the vendor I got my Minoxes from about the lack of objective covers and was told. "Minox has no objective (covers) as as they feel it is not needed with their
hard coatings."

My Minox BD 10x44 BP came with lens caps for the objective lenses & the eyepiece lenses.

Have not heard back from the Minox Oz importer, talk about service.

So i will email Minox in USA. Hopefully they will be more attentive to customer satisfaction and after sales service .

Emailed usa@minox.com last evening about getting a set of objective lens covers for my BF 10X42binos . Tonight received an email from Minox, Germany saying that the covers will be mailed today to me free of charge. Now that's what I call customer service. I am very impressed.

Pity the  Australian Minox distributor, Xtec, were not as responsive.

So their coatings are scratch-proof?

I think your vendor is talking out the wrong end.  I would recommend getting objective lens covers.
