  • Excerpt: Amazing for events, theater. I use them for 3 hours at a time and even if seated far from stage I see every detail in a dark room. I liek the x7 they do not move like a x10 or x12. Easy to put in jacket pocket. Much better than any other 8x20 those are dark.
  • Pros: Close Focus, Compact, Lightweight, Quality Lenses, Strong Construction, Works Well With Glasses

This is the highest compact

  • Summary: I have so far seen many 7x models. This 7x26 compact is the quality which should wonder also in them. Probably, the quality of optics and a mechanism may call it a record level. It is the proof of being made in Japan. This is the highest compact for me.
  • Pros: Fine View
  • Cons: no

Great binoculars

Ed Hynes, opticsplanet.com
27 February 2013
  • Summary: I've been tempted by these for a while and finally decided to try them. The optics are excellent--clear and bright from edge to edge, exit pupil is large for compacts (3.7 mm) so viewing is much less tiring than 8x20s, good depth of field, 363 ft FoV, excellent balance and handling. I wear glasses and was a little worried the the eye-relief would be marginal, but it is more than adequate. Lens caps (eyepiece only) fit perfectly, strap and case both seem good.
  • Pros: Excellent optics, handling, weight and size, build
  • Cons: Not waterproof

bushnell Elite

  • Summary: I purchased this binocular because I lost my other Bushnell Elite. The clarity and field of view is outstanding, focus is very quick and easy. I wish this same binocular came in a 9 or 10 power.
  • Pros: lots! High quality item
  • Cons: not worth mentioning

Good but not excellent

  • Excerpt: I've bought these mostly for travel. Pros: Contrast is very high and feels natural without exaggeration of small details or anything like that. Chromatic aberrations are moderate. I could not notice any problems with resolution. No wonder Bushnell boasts about these binoculars being one of the best for birding. Ergonomics are good, focusing is comfortable, exit pupil is large enough and eyeglasses are no problem.
  • Pros: Quality Lenses, Works Well With Glasses
  • Cons: Bulky, Not Waterproof

My Favorite Compact

Biking Birder, B&H Photo
4 July 2011
  • Excerpt: I purchased the first version of this binocular for my late wife in the spring of 1971. The older version of this model was available in both 6x and 7x, and had a gutta-percha finish rather than the current non-slip finish. This reverse Porro-prism design is still my favorite of all the compacts I have tried, including a beautiful Swarovski. This is the fourth copy of this model I have purchased, and was a special gift for a friend.
  • Pros: Compact, Lightweight, Quality Lenses, Strong Construction, Works Well With Glasses
  • Cons: Not Waterproof

Bushnell Elite 7x26

Michael, opticsplanet.com
8 October 2010
  • Summary: No matter how I adjust the width, it is hard to initially see out of the binoculars. When I bring them up to my eyes, usually part of the view is blocked. I have to move them up or down or closer or farther awway and then when I get a clear view, to make sure I hold that position exactly.
  • Pros: Compact size, clarity
  • Cons: Difficult to use
