    Well, it seems like binoculars are on topic, and there has been extensive
    discussion of Russian optics in the past, so I thought I might relate a
    recent experience.
    
    I have a cosseted set of binoculars which I try to look after and keep out
    of other's hands, a set of mid-range Fujinons, 7x50. For everyday,
    knockabout use I had a set of Tascos. After about 12 year's use, the Tascos
    were due for replacement.
    
    By chance, I picked up a pair of BPOc's,7x30, produced by  the Russian KOMZ
    factory, off Ebay for $69US.
