      3.0 Olympus Trooper 7x35 DPS R


      Not very expensive, large FOV, lightweight, feels good in your hands.


      Only 7x power, some chromatic aberration, poor eye relief.


      This pair of binoculars is small - only 7x35 which, by today's standard, is not much for astronomy. But these are quite a nice pair of small binos. They have the less expensive, but not necessarily bad, BK7 prisms. The eye relief is 12mm which is about minimum for eye glass wearers. FOV is a generous 9 degrees. The glass is "coated" only and the weight is 23oz.

      Now for viewing there, is hardly any edge sharpness. Chromatic aberration is minimal and is only noticeable near the edge. However, eye relief is poor at only 12mm. They feel very good in your hands and you can hand-hold them for quite some time without any support. Typically there is no tripod socket with these small binos, but all in all, they give a decent view. With a 9 degree field of view you see quite a lot, but remember that the power is only 7x. The cost is less than $50 and if you want a starter, less expensive pair of binoculars, then these will fit the bill quite nicely. These come with caps, simple strap and soft case.
