CARL ZEISS optical instruments really need no introduction at all. Interest in vintage West German CARL ZEISS (oberkochen) and East German CARL ZEISS JENA binoculars is very high and good examples of both brands are well worth seeking out.
The dekarem was an up market 10 x 50 from carl zeiss jena and was a great performer. And this one still is!
It has been in my collection for some time, but I`m now ready to part with it. The DEKAREM was in production for literally decades, and being a premium model it reportedly was totally hand built with superior parts and this assembly method was maintained even after the very similar JENOPTEM models were introduced. By the 1980`s it received the latest and best lens coatings available in the East German Zeiss factory.
T his example is a very pleasing one. The optics are bright and focusing is smooth and pleasant.
It is a large traditional binocular that begs to be used because of the great images it delivers. It is complete with its original black leather case and straps. No lens caps, but the lens cloth that came with it is supplied. Defects: a few tiny tiny dust specks, perhaps a trace of haze and 2-3 tiny circular marks on the inside the r. Objective lens which have no discernible impact on the view out; a few very minor external marks and some slight paint loss from the focusing wheel which is very typical of carl zeiss jena models.
I take great care examining, using and describing the binoculars & scopes i sell, and always get a second opinion. Also, please remember, everyone`s eyes are different....
