Swarovski and Zeiss at the top end of the price range are still dominating the market with the brilliant Zeiss SF, Swarovski Field Pros and CL companions and also the Pocket range of compacts which are the best binoculars of their type. Also we have the new Nikon Monarch HG.
Midrange is dominated by Opticron,Hawke, Vanguard and our own Delta brand with the SL3 being a best seller.
At the lower end of the price range the Opticron Discovery and Trailfinder and the Delta S are very good value for money products.And priced just above these are the new Opticron Naturas which are proving to be very good.
At the moment at the top end of the spotting scopes are the Swarovski ATX/STX modular systems which offer unbeatable performance.
The cheaper Swarovski ATS/STS80/65 is still proving to be really popular the optics in these where upgraded from the earlier ATM/STM so offer excellent value for money.
Priced a little bit lower is the new Zeiss Gavia 85 spotting scope
Mid price range is dominated by the Opticron ES80 ED.
For a cheaper scope Vanguard and Hawke are very popular.
Whilst with the small lightweight/travel scopes the new Opticron MM4 50mm and 60mm range is by far the most popular .
Breaking news is a new lightweight Opticron Traveller range along with the new Imagics.
Also a Swarovski BTX dual eyepiece to fit the 65 85 and 95 modules this will give both eye viewing of 30x with the 65 and 85 and 35x with the 95 objectives this will give comfortable viewing over long periods ideal for seawatching.
