Q Which are the most popular models?
A Binoculars magnifying by 7x or 8x are the most popular types world-wide, mainly because they are easier to hold steady than those of higher magnifications, although other factors also play a part in their popularity.
However, for some activities, especially those involving wild creatures, there is sometimes need for stronger magnifications; then the variable-power "zoom" binocular can be a good substitute for two or more single-power models.
The Lynx 6-12x25 binocular, is a fine example of a zoom, combining pocketable size with excellent optical and mechanical performance and a useful power range to 6x to 12x. This and all other Lynx binoculars are built to last for years of trouble-free service without the need for over-protection.
