Binocular Problem

9 posts in this topic

Well i have some Bushnell Zoom binoculars (cant remember the exact name). Well the problem is that it only zooms in on the left side. Any advice as to how to fix it? I dont want to open them up and make it worse. What should i do? ThanksNHK

Welcome to the site you will find a lot of very nice people here and useful information here. Back to your ? dont know much about binocular repair but i had tried to fix an old pair of tasco's and come to find out it was a big waste of time to try and fix some thing that is not worth fixing...... I bought a nice pair of nikon drury 10x42s they are not the best but are worth every penny I have had them for about 5 years and have never had a problem with them... :yahoo:

Thanks everyone. They were big and bulky anyway. Any suggestions on a new pair? I'm mainly going to be using them for glassing for deer. Are the 8x42 not enough zoom? Whats a good brand but not that expensive. Was thinking either Leupold or Nikon. ThnaksF_M

I had a pair of ziess and loved them, but I misplaced them and bought a pair of nikon monarchs to replace them. The nikons are 8x42 and alot heavier than the 8x32 ziess, I like the nikons every bit as much as the ziess and at 300 bucks they are a good buy. If you do alot of spot and stalk for deer then go with the 10x or 12x but most of the deer hunting I do is with a bow in the thicker stuff so 8x is more than enough. :D

In daylight even cheap binos can look pretty good. Where you really notice the difference is at first and last light and when you are looking into shadows. Trying to spot a ground squirrel at the base of a tree at distance or trying to find that bedded Buck in the shadows................Cheap binos will let you down. Good glass is amazing! You will really love having a good pair of binoculars. Unfortunately Good = Expensive for the most part.
