love close focus. We often study birds up close, and when birds
aren't available many of us watch butterflies. The closer a
binocular focuses, the better we like it.
close focus is not a cut-and-dried matter. Close focus varies
from person to person through binoculars just as it does with
the naked eye. So the distance that the manufacturer quotes
is at best a guideline. To determine true close focus, you have
to try the binoculars with your own eyes.
close a binocular will focus is determined by the design of
the eyepiece. It is not necessarily related to the magnification.
