Worked great at safari in Africa

Summary: I purchased these binoculars for a safari in Africa. They worked exactly as expected and I saw both leopards and lions clearly and up close (tested them out looking at the moon and it was amazing). I didn't put a 5 in my rating as I could not keep my glasses on while using the binoculars (which from other reviews seemed possible and one of my reasons for choosing them).
Summary: So far I have used this product in the field on two ocations, for multiple day trips. During the first trip, the temperature was in the high 30s, and there was a little fogging of the eye lenses. This was external, not internal, so I used an anti-fog lens product for that problem, and it went away. This past weekend the temperature was in the teens, with snow, and these binoculars worked as advertised. Very clear view and well constructed.
Summary: Crisp and clear views regardless of close up or not. Absolutely the best for wildlife viewing; it is as if they are right in front of you! Easy adjustment, easy to hold; PERFECT case, protective covers are a brilliant design. Tremendous value for the exceptional quality of these binocs!
Summary: For the money these are fantastic binoculars! This is our first time to buy binoculars so I really have no way to compare them to anything fancier or pricier. So I guess I'd have to say they are great beginners. We just returned from a beach vacation and I can say we are completely, 100% satisfied with these. I would recommend them to friends!
Summary: With a little research, I knew the criteria for the binoculars I needed. I found them here, at a great price. Good deal; Fast service and delivery. I am a happy bird watcher!!...and soon whales, too!!
Summary: I wear glasses and have found ordinary binoculars to be frustrating. With the very long eye relief and 7.1 mm exit pupil these are wonderful to use. The image is very large and crisp thanks to the BaK-4 prisms and multi-coated optics. The only thing even slightly negative I can say is the center focus is a little slow, but the amazing image overcomes a small problem like that.
