    Default BINOX question

    Ive got LEICA 10x50 BN - oldish but was still perfect.

    Just recently , after i refocussed both 'lenses' for my eyes a couple of times i CANNOT focus to infinity i.e. long range.
    i cannot focus past about 100m or so.

    The lenses are working , it's as though the internal 'gearing' slipped when i refocussed them.

    any suggestions please??

    thanks

    If you de-couple the lenses from each other, can you focus each side to infinity separately?

    Leica should never break, or have a lifetime warranty?

    spoke to Leica.
    they must send it to Portugal - at my expense.
    then the repairs and return at my expense.
