  • Excerpt: Excellent binoculars clear view case is very handy also. I bought these for hunting they are a little heavier than I'm used to but for the price and the quality I'll get used to them fast definitely would recommend to anyone

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.

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.

LEGEND 8X42 PORRO

Visorup, Amazon
12 August 2011
  • Summary: This bino is now discontinued which is a bit strange as I believed it to be either a replacement for or an upgrade to the Bushnell Legacy 8x42 porro. According to Bushnell's website only the 10x50 is officially still listed as current.

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...
