Who makes RSPB binoculars? – Question Answered

RSPB HD 8x42 BinocularsI have had a number of requests recently from readers wondering where and who makes RSPB binoculars, so I thought it may be worth writing a short post about what I have managed to discover:

Who

After a little digging around, it seems that they are produced by Viking Optical who i think organise their manufacture and come up with the designs.

This has been the case for many years, but also includes their newer models like the series of RSPB HD Binoculars pictured on the right.

Where

As for where they are made and as with many, many brands, Viking Optical are not the OEM (Original equipment manufacturer). Rather most of their instruments are manufactured in China. Although I have read that some of their higher end binoculars are made in Japan, but I have as of yet not been able to verify this or indeed which models they are.

Range

At the time of writing, RSPB have about 8 different ranges, each with a number of models within them in different configurations:

  • RSPB HD Binoculars – Roof Prism, 8x42, 10x42, 8x32 & 6.5x32
