This is the highest compact

bjmaster, opticsplanet.com

  • 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

  • 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

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

  • Summary: Because my wife and me needed two small pair of binoculars, we started searching / comparing websites and reading revieuws. After six months of serieus searching, we bought two pair of Bushnell 7 x 26 Elite Custom Compact Porro Prism Binoculars 620726, withhout testing or even seeing. Although we have used Swift Audubon 8.5x44, a number of other binoculars and many professional 35 mm camera's, we are very satisfied with our choice.
  • Pros: Outstanding 7x26 quality
  • Cons: No cons

  • Summary: This has to be a best buy if you do not need a bino that is not submersible. Clarity and contrast is almost as good as my ED Pentax 8x32. Edge clarity is not as good as the Pentax because of Pentax's aspheric lenses ( at 3x cost).I own the the original 7x26 custom compact single coating designed almost 30 years ago for NASA. This third or fourth generation upgrade of a classic will most likely be my all purpose field optic.
  • Pros: Sharpness of original 7x26 NASA design from 30 yrs ago with increased contrast and weather proofing.
  • Cons: None for the price
