    Default Oberwerk 10x50 deluxe vs ultra



    I would like to know what the differences are between the Oberwerk 10x50 deluxe and the 10x50 ultra, of course the $100 difference. Thanks very much.

    The less expensive binoculars may have an internal stop/true aperture of less then 50mm. My 15x70 LW have an internal stop/aperture of 64mm. You can call Oberwerk for the true aperture. What I like is that the the less expensive binoculars are threaded for filters. The more expensive binoculars have individual focus, very important.

    Hello Michael,

    the Oberwerk Ultra are the 10x50 from the BA8 series (Kunming Optical, China), solid body, well sized prism house, and a good optics according to the military specs in China.
    I am using the BA8 10.5x70 and BA8 15x85, and they are excellent suited for the astronomy, the 10.5x70 is not behind the Nikon 10x70 Astroluxe, I also have.

    Oberwerk Ultra is just a brand name, nothing to do with manufacturing, quality control, etc., as some people believe.
    These binoculars come to the U.S. (and to elsewhere) not directly from the manufacturer, but from one of the export companies located in China, whenever the exporter collectes a batch of orders on 100 items.
    Oberwerk has purchased the selling rights from Garrett Optical, https://oberwerk.com/garrett-optical/ which used to be the original distributor of what is today Oberwerk Ultra.

    Hello Michael,

    at the medium magnifications around 10x, I prefer the 10.5x70 "Ultra". They offer more light than any 10x50,
    and I can fasten the 1.25" nebular filters on their long eye relief eye lenses, similarly like here
