Summary: What I expected, the glasses are great, my only reservation is regarding size. If I were buying in a shop I would have purchased compact set to easily fit in my pocket, which is obviously no reflection on the quality.
Summary: The 10x42 binoculars produce beautifully clear, crisp images but are somewhat let down by:- (a) The dioptre adjustment on the right eye piece is very stiff and I find it impossible to adjust whilst looking through the lens; (b) The tethered lens caps on the objective lenses are a bit of a nuisance; and (c) One of the metal twistup eye cups is slightly defective insofar as it does not tighten into place when screwed down for use with spectacles.
Summary: I bought these binoculars for bird watching and on the several outings I have had with them I can say I am very pleased. The image is very clear and bright even in lower light levels and they are quick and easy to focus. The only two little niggles I have is that they are a bit heavier than I was expecting and the strap on the carry case is not long enough. Anyway, it is the image that is most important and that is first class.
Summary: Delivered very quickly from Picsio. Extremely well made binoculars. I remember Barr & Stroud in Scotland where they made periscopes for the Naval submarines. They have been manufacturing optics since before the second world war. During that time they made marine binoculars for the Royal Navy and for the army. Excellent reputation for quality products.
Summary: Got them today. I am impressed by their ease of use, bright clear display and their lightness. The large lens caps are atgtached to the body and it is possible to easily attach the small caps - so I won't lose them.
Summary: Chose this binoculars because of the ratings in several comparative tests and the reputation of the brand. On arrival the looks where very charming, the handling very smooth and easy to handle. Outdoors they are amazing, very comfortable to use and crisp focus, very good light. I have tried others, even brands with prices more than 10 times expensive and I think this one is best Good for open outdoors seashore birdwatching an even in forests with a lot o shadows
