smooth ocular DF. 7x50 Zeiss 1941 with leather Benutzer
« on: September 05, 2017, 11:49:57 PM »

before the standard uboat 7x50 was introduced, this model with #trockenpatronen was the standard issue. But it was too fragile. This particular model is from one of the last series of its kind, still with the original leather ocular cap

That is an expectionally excellent binocular Martin. In the past few years I have come across quite a few photos of them in use on the front line , most commonly in U Boats - quite a few in that of the "Milkcow" type- most likely as they more often than not had war correspondents attached to them.
Will look out a few when we get back.
