New Binoculars, military



Ref: bin-nato-6X30

A genuine military binocular made for NATO forces, and complete with sighting graticules. I've chosen a 6X30 because that is the standard magnification for infantry troops. The M.O.D. can choose any size and magnification whey wish, they use 6 (magnification) X30 (30mm diameter lenses) because that gives the widest field of view and crispest image for troops on the move. 7" wide X 7" tall X 2½" deep. 840g



This interesting and very solidly constructed binocular reminds me strongly - both optically and in its design - of the Fujinon FMTR-SX 6x30, which is widely regarded as the best 6x30 binocular currently made. I owned an example of this superb Japanese binocular for some time. The image quality of the 'Nato 6x30' binocular is outstanding, with a very impressive edge to edge sharpness which again reminds me of the Fujinon model, which employs a special field flattening element in the eyepieces. The Nato 6x30 appears to have multicoated optics which are blue/purple in hue, unlike the greenish-coated lenses of the Fujinon FMTR-SX, which are reported to have extremely high light transmission because of their 'electron beam' coatings. Over the last decade several robust military-style binoculars have appeared from China, including some high quality 6x30 models. The Nato 6x30 is of better optical and mechanical quality than the Chinese 6x30s I have tested to date and is close to the much-admired Fujinon FMTR-SX binocular in its performance.


The Fujinon 6X30 FMTR-SX hasn't been made for a few years now. Am I likely to get a Fujinon 6X30 second hand? Maybe. Please keep an eye on my LIST OF SECOND HAND BINOCULARS. (most likely in the section "All binoculars over £100.00 ").
