Minox Optics: designed in Germany, made in Germany*


A decent pair of binoculars lasts a lifetine. That is why Minox HG APO binoculars have a 30 year guarantee.


We stock the full range of MINOX binoculars, spotting scopes, hunting cameras, and night vision equipment. Minox's design philsophy of "precision in the smallest space"' extends to all their devices, whether photographic, nature, or hunting.



We at Hobbies recommend the High Grade APO range of binculars from Minox for serious users. If you are sing an older pair from the 1990's or before, the adances in optical technology and weight make the latest models a world apart from even 10 or 15 uyears ago. Minox's patent coatings and use of glass from Schott offer a real alternative to Leica.


Optical quality aside, the biggest difference betwen old and new models is the weight saving. Use of magnesium and superior design has made  modern MINOX binoculars portable for extended use.


Made in Wezlar, Germany [same location as Leica], we belive the Minox HG range offer a more reasonable alternative to Leica, saving £300-400 for a quality interdeminate from Leica Ultravid equivalent models
