WO vs BO vs Denkmeier Binoviewer Shootout...

Post by acc »

Just received a pair of (second-hand) standard Denkmeier binoviewer today. Will post my experience with it after comparing with my WO/Burgess binoviewers. Is the Denk worth the additional cost compared to the WO units? Stay tuned... :) :)

cheers
