I just got an old set of kalimar Model K7070 Binoculars ( 7X-15X35)from my father. They seem to have some type of water drop marks in the left lens. Are these worth trying to repair. I do not know what he...


The water drop marks you are seeing may be seperation of the lens coating. Most binoculars after WW2 have some form of anti-relective coating on the lens. This is applied to the glass surfaces in varying degress by various manufacturers. Its intended purpose is to reduce the amount of light that is reflected off the glass so that the image you see is brighter. Your windows at home that aren't covered actually don;t allow all of the light to come through!
What they all have in common is that the coating is applied onto the glass. Over time like anything that is stuck on or painted it can begin to peel off.
You could try asking a repair place if they caqn replace the lens but most likely they would need to change both so that they have the same coating. The binoculars are worth more for sentimental value than the cost of repair as a similar replacement set would cost as much. Zoom binoculars are not known for their optical quality. Often this 'watermark' effect doesn not interfere with the view. If your sentiments say fix them regardless do so. If not hold onto them as a keep sake.

I have an old pair of bushnell binoculars. only problem I don't know how to find them online they are silver like and come in a old brown case and they were made in japan. triple tested coated optics says...


If you do an image search for Nikon Mikron and the one you have looks the same then you have a Bushnell copy from the 1950's called the Palm Pocket. These appeared in the 1950's. The 6x18 was available from 1951. The 7x18 and can be found in the Bushnell 1958 catalogue. By the 1965 catalogue they had gone from the product line up. If you look around the body of the binoculars you may find a code beginning with JB or JL followed by a number. This number will give the name of the Japanese manufacturer who made them for Bushnell. If you get the number go here for the codes

The Palm Pocket came in 7x18 and 6x18 designs. A larger model the Broadfield was available with 25mm objectives
