Excerpt: Solid build, good quality image in it's class. Do not expect same result as from bigger objective lens binoculars. It is just 25. I have Nikon 8x42 - big difference.Because of waterproof construction it is hard to rotate the focus and diopter adjustment rings. Lightweight. I used it for day trips to state parks. Next test will be ballet performance. Overall, I like the binocular and recommend it for people who need lightweight, good quality inexpensive optics.
Summary: I like these pretty well and they provide a good view. However, they are a bit heavier than some other compacts, and the eyecups were just terrible--they wouldn't stay rolled! I ended up cutting them off since I wear glasses.
Excerpt: These aren't as sleek looking as the Nikon trailblazers I compared them with, but for about half the price for the same features (waterproof, twistup eyecups, etc.), no major difference in the quality of the view, and a more stable focus wheel, they're fantastic. I'm looking forward to carrying them on some wildlife viewing trips as well as taking them to the opera. Bonus goodness: they were also cheaper here at B&H than on [*]!
Excerpt: The good: compact size; field of view flat in about 85% visible area (better than my Steiner Marine 7x50); unexpectedly brilliant color for such a small package (the best feature of this device); 13 mm eye relief is not great, but OK for me (with glasses). The bad: junky construction. The sleeve of the right eye piece came loose right out of the box (does not appear to affect function, and easy to fix, so did not bother to return/exchange).
Summary: I bought these on a fancy. I have a number of other pairs of binoculars but found the price and spec of this pair a little hard to resist. I thought I would buy them and road test them with a view to returning them if I felt they were anything less than acceptable. In fact, they are quite desirable. They are not the smallest and lightest, although the image is very clear and focusing is easy.
