Good bins for a good price

JOHN R LANDON, Amazon

  • Summary: Lovely optics. I'm no expert so my assessment is based on nothing more scientific than the clarity of the image which is excellent. And the most surprising point for 12x magnification is that they focus down to a few metres. I personally like the new streamlined shape after owning several pairs of conventional binoculars with offline eyepieces. These are very comfortable to use and, once set for my eyes, very quick and smooth to focus.

Great field binoculars.

  • Summary: These binoculars are very good for wildlife viewing of which I use them mainly for. ( Safaris in Africa and Wild Birds of Prey in UK ). Very good quality as you would expect from a name like Barr and Stroud. Lens covers are good and are attached to binoculars and neck strap which means you won't lose them. Comes with a sturdy carrying pouch that has it's own carrying strap with a pocket for lens cleaning cloth that is supplied.

  • Summary: What a fantastic pair of binoculars these are, i was a little apprehensive in buying such high magnification for bird watching when i get the chance, but needn't have worried they are brilliant. My family love them , the are very clear and steady. we take them up to Leighton moss RSPB and they don't dissapoint. I bought my son the Barr and Stroud 8x42 last year but now he's took over these.

Impressive

  • Summary: These have just arrived and I'm really impressed with them. They are actually better than I was expecting. I am also impressed with the suppliers ( Morris Photo) who had a very small problem with my order but efficiently over came this by upgrading my order to compensate, and still arrived within the delivery time scale.

  • Summary: Ordered 1400 Thurs 28 Feb, arrived 0920 next morning. Had previously tried a similar pair of a friend's, and these certainly lived up to my expectations. Brilliant clear images, and so easy and quick to find, centre and focus. Everything you would hope for; I highly recommend.

Great quality and design, superb optics

Harpjohn, Amazon
17 November 2012
  • Summary: I wanted a pair of 12X50 binocs, my first good pair, and out of old-time brand-fondness ordered the Pentax 12X50 XCF via Amazon. The first pair arrived... broken, but I could just look through them enough to see they were a vast improvement on what I had. So I returned them and went to another Amazon company to get another pair of the same. Despite the binocs being in an Amazon box these 12X50 XCF arrived even more broken, a lens barrel sheared off!
