They went back to B&H

  • Excerpt: These binoculars are too hefty for 8x42 weighing 3 lbs. Magnification was disappointing. Field of view is limited making it hard to find what your looking for. Most people would find these binoculars fine for general use or as starter binoculars viewing something not moving.
  • Pros: Strong Construction, Works Well With Glasses
  • Cons: Bulky, Difficult To Focus, Heavy

Nice, but too wide for my eyes

  • Excerpt: I have to send these back, as they don't adjust to be narrow enough that they align completely with my eyes. They are wide, which makes them easier to hold than others but take up more room in a bag.
  • Pros: Quality Lenses, Strong Construction
  • Cons: Bulky, Difficult To Focus

  • Excerpt: They are nice binoculars. Easy to figure out and a clear view. The strap is so so, but other than that, I really like them. They are a good first pair.
  • Pros: Close Focus, Strong Construction, Waterproof
  • Cons: Strap is not so hot

Fantastic glass - badly let down by cheap casing.

  • Summary: Let me explain. I also paid only about £100 for these. About two years ago; so this is a review of a pair of bins that have been used, but not yet overused. And they were (and still are) great. I've used Binocuklars costing more than twice the price and not liked them as much as these.
