What a bargain! Oberwerk high-quality light-weight 60mm binoculars, at a 50mm price! That extra 10mm doesn’t sound like very much- but 60mm objectives gather 44% more light than 50mm models (surface area = pi*r2). With that much extra light-gathering power, these are ideal for a low-cost entry into binocular astronomy. They are also excellent for birding, nautical applications, and surveillance.

Not only do you get big 60mm objectives- you get the same highest-quality BAK4 prisms that are found in much more expensive models. These are available in your choice of either 9x or 12x magnification. All air-to-glass surfaces are fully broadband multi-coated to decrease light loss due to scattering and reflections, a feature normally found only on binoculars with much higher price tags. All Oberwerk binoculars have rugged rubber-armored metal bodies, all-glass lenses, right ocular diopter adjustment, brass 1/4-20 tripod adapter threading, case, caps, and our premium heavy-duty denim strap.

    I just love it! Live in Fiji & ordered it International Express – received within a week. Have had it for about 2 weeks now and I’m just so happy to be able to see stuff I’d been wanting to see for so long! (example M6 & M7) I’d wanted the 20×80 but for a 1st binoculars, I’m glad I went with these. Once I get a mount, my next bino will definitely be 20×80 LW (cost considerations) Thanks Oberwerk.

    I shocked many viewers this weekend with the 9×60’s, clarity vs. price. Only the $700 and up Nikons or Swarovskis were close.

    Just got the 9X60LW binocular. I have two other smaller binoculars, and this one is by far the best. For its size it’s fairly lightweight. You can hook it up to a tripod or monopod if you wish. I have an excellent 10×42 binocular, and the 9X60 has a half-degree wider field, which is a lot of difference, The long eye relief allows me to keep my glasses on while viewing, whereas the 10X42 requires me to take off my glasses, a major pain. This binocular offers superb optics and a very affordable price. Great for beginners and anybody else, for day or night use.

    I’ve had the 12x60s for over a decade now. These are nice binocs, definitely a few steps up from the junk sold by a certain major telescope vendor Celestron.

    Two complaints, one against myself, the other against the binocs. I didn’t listen to all the advice about getting binocs that are too much to handle, and I should have. You should really only go 10×50 for handheld use. These LWs are not exactly lightweight, and 12x magnification is a bit too much to hold steady unless you’ve got your elbows propped up, or you’re leaning on something. The combo of the weight and the magnification make these tough to use handheld. Not impossible; just tough. If I had it to do over, I would have definitely gotten the 10x50s instead.

    The other complaint is about the focuser. Oh, it works, as does the diopter on the right eye. It’s just that it slips out of focus all the time. It just doesn’t stay focused well, requiring frequent readjustments. If this were better, I’d give it 5 stars.

      The focusers on the LW Series were improved several years ago. They hold focus well even if inward pressure is applied to the eyecups.
