Binoculars What Do the Numbers Mean?

Answer

The numbers in binoculars signify the zooming capability of binoculars. For instance, 10-22x50mm means that the zoom portion is capable of viewing at 10x power least and it can be adjusted to 22x power. The 50mm means that the objective lens size can focus on that length.
