ROSS Steptron 8X30

Another great pair of binoculars and very collectible. What is particularly interesting is the position and size of focus wheel. Is it really huge and accurate. It is heavy and well built. The view is very English; very sharp, wide but not as crisp and neutral colours as some best German binoculars. If you have Kershaw Olympic or Barr & Stroud C.F. 24 than you know what I mean.

Second opinion: Simon Spiers, WpgBinoculars
