Carl Zeiss EDF 7 X 40 Full Mill-Spec Binoculars
Up for sale are a really nice original example of what are commonly described as the finest military binoculars in the world. These suburb glasses were made by Carl Zeiss in the "old" factory in Jena that ended up in the Russian part of Germany after the war. They were designed with a "cost no object" policy because the East Germans thought that every purchaser of Eastern Block military equipment, would want them. Perhaps that's true but, they didn't seem to anticipate that the prospective "client countries" were mostly broke and had trouble putting food on their soldiers plates, let alone the civilian population!

They arrived "brand new" still in the plastic shrink rap that they left the factory in. I have carried them carefully, the few times I used them. Never, ever dropped or mistreated in ANY way!

No lens delamination, fogging, scratches, marks or coating issues (deliberate yellowish tinge). They come with the original instruction book (dated 1993 by myself when I finally got them), a small plastic case with the anti-glare lenses you can insert into the optics on top, see manual. Recticle in the right hand side barrel (VERY detailed explanation in the manual), as well as the tritium on/off switch to view the recticle in dim light (quite faint after 30 odd years as tritium has a half life of 11 years) and an infra-red detector in the left barrel that gathers light through a small port to charge the item that can be rolled into the line of vision of the left barrel.
