Hi all, new to the forum and got a quick question regarding a set of zeiss binoculars.
 
The binoculars are an old set of jena 10x50s the prisms on both sides behind the objective lenses are both badly chipped. I cant find a replacement set of prisms by zeiss but I have found a set of bosch and lomb prisms. The prisms are the same size as the zeiss ones but are out of a set of 7x50 binoculars and I was wondering if they would be ok in my binoculars?
 
Cheers Owain

Hi Gwain,
You're talking serious, fill or kill type surgery, so presumably you're sure you cannot live with glass as is.
If the prisms fit, they should work. There may be some focus issues, because the glass formulation of the B&L prisms is different, but Zeiss and B&L were pretty close in the 20s and 30s, so hopefully they shared glass technology. The 7x or 10x is not an issue, magnification is set in the eye piece, not the prisms.
The prism mountings may be a stumbling block unless the sizes are an exact match.
Let us know how it pans out.

Cheers for the reply. Yeah the prisms were fairly trashed and these are only $10 for two. I'll let you know how I get on. Cheers Owain
