Thread: Minox Optics

    Minox Optics

    Can anyone please give me some advice on Minox binos? I am looking at maybe buying a set in 8 or 10 power. Need your views on wieght,build,light gathering and does the QCF range system work?? and any ideas of where the best deals are at moment?

    I recently bought a pair of binos from Minox's budget range as a spare set to have in the car or when I don't have my good pair. 8x42 169, bargain. I have heard reports that cheap Minoxes underperform in low light, however I used them a couple of times roe stalking early in the morning at Christmas and was pleasantly suprised by them. I have not done a direct comparison with my Leicas but they certainly punch above their weight for this price. Minox do sell other more expensive pairs which I have not used so cannot really comment on them. Lots of people on this site write favourably about Minox so hopefully someone will help you here?

    Link to where I bought mine:

    I hope this helps?

    A friend picked up my Leupold wind Rivers and left his Minox by accident so I have been using a brand new set of these for the last few weeks and for the money you cant go wrong I recon the Leupolds are a bit more ergenomic and only slightly better opticaly but for 100 less you would expect them not to be quite as good but only a fag packet spliting them.

    I use a pair of Minox BV 8x42 BR's picked up off E-Bay for 156, great optics.

    Two of the deals to be had today.

    MINOX Binoculars BV 8x42 BR + NEW + Waterproof + on eBay (end time 26-Jan-11 13:55:02 GMT)

    MINOX BF 10x42 BR BLACK SPECIAL ONLY £129.95 on eBay (end time 22-Jan-11 12:37:53 GMT)

    Life should be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving skidding in sideways, Merlot in one hand, Cigar in the other, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming WOO HOO what a ride!
