Compared to what ?

Compared to made-in-Germany Leica and Zeiss, older Japanese top-end binos. Particularly roof-prism binos that need very precise engineering to really be good, to have the most accurate alignment and optical quality. This is why binos made by Zeiss Germany for instance decades ago bring such high prices on Ebay.

In that case you should have commented that all binos not made in Germany by Zeiss and Leica are junk.

What about Leica binos made in Portugal or those made in Japan ?

I think that nostalgia and snobbism is clouding your thinking.

BTW, there is a very good chance that the "older Japanese top-end binos" were made by the same manufacturer that makes most of the top end Japanese binoculars now as well as those Zeiss made in China and the made in Japan Leica .
