Bit of a poser for you here.
I was in a charity shop today and came across a pair of binoculars. They look quite old (well, let's face it, they ARE quite old) but I glanced through them and the image was brilliant. Well worth lashing out a fiver on anyway. The focus ring was spinning freely, but the diopter adjustment seemed to work well. These things just felt right in my hand!
So anyway, I got them home, tightened up three little screws on the focus wheel and it now works beautifully. They seem to have a very wide FOV, the eyepiece quotes a 122m FOV at 1000m, for a 10x40 bin, a boast I thought, but actually having looked through them I'm inclined to believe them.
They have "Leitz wetzlar" on the top, and bear the name "TRINOVID" on the right eye cup, and "Germany 739652" on the left one. Don't suppose anyone can tell me anything about them? I have a feeling I might have got a bit of a bargain, like I said, they have the feel of serious quality about them, despite looking a little foxed.
I'll try and get some pics up at some point soon.
Any info gratefully received.
