Steiner Miniscope is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 3.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from I bought this miniscope on a Lufthansa flight to Europe a few weeks ago and am impressed by its clarity and ease of use despite it weighing only 80g. I use it often when I don't want to carry a large pair of binoculars around. a real find!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lived up to expectations I've known about Steiner Optics and their awesome quality's for some time but I never had any personal experience until I purchased my first sight. I stood up to ALL of my expectations; it's clear as if it wasn't even there, built like a tank, and its quality/fit and finish is amazing. Already purchased my second optic and plan on many more. You can't go wrong with a steiner!

The current Steiner logo does not include the word 'Germany' as part of it. That logo was changed several years ago.
