Need a small binocular with good close focus

I'll be going on a nature-related trip soon and need a lightweight binocular for viewing birds and wildlife, and with a good close focus for insect and butterfly watching. What can you suggest?



Dear Nan,
Thanks for your inquiry.

In regard to a small binocular with a good close focus, you could consider, in order of optical quality:

Pentax Papilio II 6.5x21 Binocular This binocular is known for having the best close focus of 18".

Kowa BD 8x25 Binocular (Green) (6 ft. close focus) A very nice compact binocular. Good value. 

Eagle Optics Ranger ED 8x32 Binocular  (4 ft. close focus) Sharp and bright, with ED glass, and better light gathering with the 32 mm objective lens. No fault warranty, too.

If you have any questions, don't hesitate to call.

All the best,

Eagle Optics
