As expected

  • Excerpt: It's bright and clear. Purchased as a gift for my mom to watch birds feed in the backyard. I used them for a week before I mailed them to her. I probably would buy something smaller for myself if I wanted a pair to throw in my hiking bag but again, no complaints with the optics.

Great value for the money

  • Excerpt: I use these for birding. Specifically, locating birds that will become photographic subjects. These binocs focus easily, and work well even in low light situations. They are a bit heavy, and may be too large for someone with small hands to comfortably use the center focus.
  • Pros: Close Focus, Strong Construction
  • Cons: Heavy

Great bins but not as per picture

S. Townsend, Amazon

  • Summary: Slightly disappointed to have received binoculars which look nothing like the picture in amazon. This inaccuracy notwithstanding these are excellent binoculars. The low light performance is great and I could see considerably more in full moon conditions than with the naked eye. Image is very sharp and the diopter adjustment is easy to use. The problem with the lens caps seems to have been solved as mine seem to stay on ok.

Nice optics

Roman, Amazon

  • Summary: Very nice optics. I am not a great expert, but it is very pleasant for my eyes. I wear glasses and those enable me to observe with my glasses on. Have used it in the forest, desert, seaside works very nicely in all the places. Also comes with the nice case and straps so one can carry it on the neck.The only thing that bothers me is that one can look inside the binoculars and see how cheaply they made.

Great binoculars for the price

S. Phelps "Metallica Forever", Amazon

  • Summary: These really are very good binoculars for £100. I tested them as soon as I got them, going out for sunrise. They were therefore tested in low light conditions and they performed really well. I could see everything clearly and they let in so much light. The focusing works fine and the rubber that they are made out makes them feel good in your hands. They don't weigh much and are a good size.

Bushnell 8x42 legacy porro

hiphopforever, Amazon
29 April 2011
  • Summary: Every bit as good as the Helios Naturesport 8x40 porro... SEE MY REVIEW! Main differences are casing, coating on prism,( green here/blue green for the Helios with no visual or optical difference) water fog proof although this comes at a price stiffer focusing bridge due to "o" ring seals on ocular assembly.
