Alpen Compact 8x25 WA

As with all compacts, this 8x25 Porro-prism binocular is optically handicapped by its undersized objective lenses, which limit its resolution and low-light performance. Even so, it scored well against players twice its size and 10 times more expensive. The panelists were favorably impressed and gave it good ratings in all categories, especially price-value, where it got the highest score.
