Question Binocular Quiz No1

I've got a few ready for you.

Here's my first. Here's a picture of Bill Oddie.

What Binoculars is he holding?
Make = 1pt Model = 2pts

P.S I don't always know the answer!

Thanks Mike,

I think dogged persistence is going to get you through either that or we'll go through the whole Leica range together!

That's looking pretty good to me.

Anyone else got a comment?

It would be great to be sponsored by these Optic and clothing companies, you could take your pick of any in the range ( ah! to be famous ). As I said the last time I saw Bill on the Telly he had Swarovski round his neck. It will be interesting to see what they are using and wearing on Autumn Watch next week. RAB Clothing and Swarovski I bet. SO SO JEALOUS.

MIKE, Nikon and Swarovski please.
