Summary: Bought these binocs as Christmas gifts for children because they were at an affordable price and have an auto focus feature. The auto focus has fantastic quality for the price, and the compact size is perfect.
Pros: Close Focus, Compact, Lightweight, Quality Lenses, Strong Construction
Compact - Easy to Use - Even when wet. Very Reasonably Priced

Summary: With length at 4.25 inches and total weight just under 1 lb, these Binoculars are compact enough to travel just about anywhere. While the 8x25 strength isn't special, they provide a quick view that is considerably better than the naked eye. The real bonus with these binoculars are that they are waterproof and fogproof something that most small binoculars can't claim. Bushnell continues to make a good product for the those shopping in the low to middle price range.
Summary: This is a replacement for binoculars destroyed in the Santa Barbara, CA Tea Fire Nov. 2008. Our son is very pleased with these in that they are small enough to fit into his pocket, are already focused, and bring the ocean into view quite nicely from their temporary home in the hills.
Excellent for the theatre, backyard and criminal activity!

Summary: Perfect! No focus to constantly fiddle with in a live theatre show. Fits nicely in most any purse (without the case) and one can enjoy actors' facial expressions and even the most smallest detail of their elaborate costumes and jewelry all the way from the upper balcony! I bought this extra set of Bushnell binoculars for our daughter when she'd accompany me to the theatre. Excellent value and fit the bill perfectly!
Summary: I use them to go to the Opera and to watch shows from a distance. They are amazingly clear and perma focus works like a charm I would appreciate if they would be less bulkier, however not an issue for me.
