    Compact and sharp

    Despite being "full size" binoculars the Zeiss Terras 8x42s are compact are pretty compact, and offer very good optics. I preferred the Zeiss Terra to binoculars in a higher price range. They are relatively lightweight, give bright sharp viewing, and are a joy to use. Great to be able to try different binoculars in store. Very happy with my purchase, and advice from UK Digital.

    By on
