Binocular problem

If this just don't beat all. After saying nice things about my Alpen spotting scope in a post last month my three year old Alpen 10x42 binos are on the fritz. While hunting on Sunday I noticed the right ocular won't come into focus.

Anybody run into this before?

Yes, I'm sending them back but geez! Its been a tough week for me and equipment.
Just a bit. I have four sets of binos but when the rifle season starts my three kids are all hunting at once so I like to make sure all the gear is operating properly in the bow season.

Man…….. I thought it was expensive buying double of everything for my wife. But you’re outfitting for 4. Not cheap.
They should take care of you Alpen is a good company, I would like to see what they do for you keep me posted. I know your pain I have to by two sets of everything for me and my son and it is always a big order every year, That is why I like the 6 month pay option that Bass Pro gives you so I can make a big order in August and get everything I need for the whole year and spread it our each month.

Hey TA
Did Alpen fix your binos ?
How long did it take them to get the binos back to you ?

Ya, they sent me a brand new pair. Three cheers for Alpen!!!

Now I'm dealing with Nikon?

I never even have problems with Leica and they're 11 years old.
