Olympus 8x40 DPS I Binocular
From the manufacturer
The exit pupil is the diameter of the light image visible through the eyepiece. The exit pupil is calculated by dividing the objective lens diameter by the magnification factor. This model offers a 5mm exit pupil, making this model an ideal choice for both low-light (dawn, dusk, dense tree cover or night sky) and daylight viewing.
Large Lenses produce needle-sharp, razor-dimensional images of brilliant quality. The 8x40 offers a Porro Prism design that is simpler and more light efficient producing vivid, 3-D Images with excellent depth of field.
The 8 x 40 offers Bak-7 lens system. High-grade optical components. The key criterion for excellent sharpness, contrast and light intensity is the quality of the prisms and lenses. Olympus lenses are a world-renowned trademark and synonymous with optical precision.

First of all, the 8 magnification was a great choice as my 7YO daughter can easily hold it by hand and enjoy a good stable image without getting too tired. The 40mm front element was a good choice too as it combines image brightness with compact shape and light body weight. In other words, we can easily carry this binocular with us when we are out and about - as we all know the best devices are the ones you can easily carry with you and use. This binocular ticks that box.
In daylight it performs reasonably well giving good views of, for example, birds and squirrels about 30 to 50 metres away. However in my opinion this binocular really shows its potential at night. Sky observation is great. You won't see nebulae or galaxies in detail - you need more serious optics to do that - but you will see many more stars and have a great view of the moon; any child, or adult, will from time to time be tempted to pick the binocular and look up at the sky for a few minutes. But the impressive bit comes when you observe the land in low light. My first target was a car parked in a rather dark spot at night and I was surprised to see how easily I could see the plate number and clearly read it, something that wasn't possible with the naked eye, not because of the distance but because it was too dark (note that my vision is very good and I don't need glasses). So whilst this is not a night vision device and it should not be bought with the expectation that it will allow you to see in the dark, it performs very well even in very poor lighting conditions where you only have low street illumination available or the light of a good full moon. I wasn't expecting it to perform like this and I am impressed.
The less impressive part is the optical quality, but again consider the price of this item. The image tends to have a cushion distortion on the sides, with some image stretching effect once you move from the central sweet spot of the observation field. The focus tends to fade as you look away from the centre of the image. Not great, but to be honest and in light of a few years of experience in photography and as the owner of optics costing in excess of £2k apiece, I wasn't expecting a jewel for this money so I don't feel disappointed at all. As anyone with a reasonable photo or video experience would testify, with some exceptions (e.g. some 50mm lenses) good optics are never cheap and the discerning eye will definitely see the difference.
The accessories also have a cheap-ish feel, but again at this price I'm not surprised.
The bottom line is: would I recommend this? Definitely yes. If you buy this you can't go wrong, it comes with a pouch, front and rear caps, lanyard, which are pretty much all you need. Another thing to consider is that if it falls and breaks, or disappears in the depth of the sea, you won't be tearing your hair out in desperation.
I was not disappointed.
Optical clarity is comparable to my vintage Zeiss', zero chromatic aberration, excellent colour rendition and contrast, sharp bright image, zero spherical aberration, 100% visual acuity, very smooth hinge, body is covered in a protective rubber, very tactile.
Only downside are the case and strap and lens covers. A wider neck strap would be more comfortable over extended periods of time, and the case could do with a bit more padding, but at this price point, I'm really clutching at straws. The lens caps are OK, but not tethered, therefore could go astray, I overcome this by replacing with Opticron 31046 & Opticron 31076, which fit perfectly. These binoculars can also be tripod mounted, and I've gone for the Opticron 31004 Tripod mount. Thank you Olympus and thank you Amazon!! 💯/💯
They come with a case and a strap, as well as lens protectors so you've got all you need straight out of the box.
