Question about Zeiss Classic B T* Compact Pocket 522033 Binocular

1 Answer

Center clamp is too loose

The center "clamp" that holds the 2 monoculars together has started to loosen so that there is a gap between the top and bottom clamp. I cannot see how to tighten them again. I would think there is a cover plate that should come off to expose a screw but I don't want to start prying anything.

Re: center clamp is too loose

Remove cover plates which are glued in ; use a pin to lift covers and use alen key to tighten.( make sure your alen key is the right size -has to fit properly otherwise you will not loosen ).

Double image occured after the omega 40 X 70 binoculars were dropped

There are a series of lenses and prisms inside the binoculars. When the unit was dropped one of more of those elements have been dislodged and that is what is causing the double image. You can check with the retailer to see if there is a repair center in your area. The way these units are put together they are difficult to take apart, repair, and put back together. Depending on the cost of the unit you might be better off replacing them. Check with the retailer to see what they say.

I cant find friction adjustment on Minolta 10 x 40 binoculars

Hi Ray:
I have Minolta binoculars with the same issue, I believe that I also have the same Minolta model: 10x40mm, roof mounted prisms, 5.6 degrees, waterproof (WR series) and model number j-b35.

Have you found any solution for the loose center hinge?

Bushnell insta-focus mechanism gets stuck.

they were famous for that, because the screwpin that holds the eyepice shaft is metal and the groove that it rides in is plastic, and eventually gets jammed....look where you put your fingers to adjust eyepieces. should be small metal plate in center of hinge(sometimes with bushnell logo) that will simply pry off by using small screw driver,and now you will be able to see if the screw is loose or damaged. good

I agree with you on that! I have a feeling they are either Nikon or Leupold sourced. The body is alot like green ring leupold ive seen but the lenses have a magenta multicoating on a lens surface which ive seen on nikon. I'm in the process of looking for the maker of them myself as I need an objective lens. I'm going to call the Cabela's Cust SVC number and see what they say. I've heard the new Euro styled binoculars are made by Meopta.
