CARL ZEISS optical instruments need no introduction at all. The German manufacturers had started making lightweight roof prism designs in the 60`s, leitz had their trinovid range carl zeiss brought out their dialyt roof prisms. The CARL ZEISS DIALYT 7 x 42B GA TP is a very sought after model with later phase corrected prism coatinfs.
Many owners considering the 7 x 42 to be the best of the DIALYT range. This example remains clean externally and has proved an absolute joy to use. At the risk of stating the obvious, a 7 x 42 binocular may not have the magnifying power of a 10x instrument, but its brightness and stability may be of greater value to the user.
The focusing controls on this one are smooth and progressive and the rubber eyecups and body are in very good condition. The optics are free from fungus and are correctly collimated, but there is some haze on the prisms. It comes with it`s superb original soft leather ZEISS with strap slots, a later ZEISS neoprene neckstrap and original ZEISS rainguard. A new microfibre lens cloth is supplied. There are no objective lens caps.
Defects: some very light usage marks around the rubber armoured body; some minute internal dust specks and some haze on the prisms; some very fine micro scratches on the objective lenses from cleaning and some light marks (not scratches) on the r.
