Revelation & Opticron 20x80 Bins, the same?

Recommended Posts

They look the same, have almost identical accessories, both have good reviews...etc

I've got the Revelation 20x80 which I bought, I think, 3 years ago, and is hardly used and was thinking about selling it. I honestly can't remember how much I paid for it, probably £100-£120. I'm just using the Opticron, if the same, as a price guide.

They could well be the same. They look like United Optics BA-1 types, which are sold under many names. Coatings may differ between different brands, however.

I have used a Vixen pair once (the ARK type), which is different from the one shown here. It was very nice indeed. I don't think the Vixen ever sold United Optics products under their brand name, but Vixen products can be found sold under other brand names (including Opticron)
