Summary: When I use binoculars with say 50mm aperture on the sky I am delighted to see so many more stars; however, the magnification so decreases the field of view that I find it is difficult to figure out where I am looking. Over the last few years, I’ve become increasingly frustrated at not really knowing where I was looking – too much information in the visual field.
Summary: I like the wide angel lens on this it is very good detail while watching sports events. The caring case is very helpful also because you can sling it over your shoulder when you are not needing to use the binoculars.
Summary: I do the public address for a semi-pro football team. I purchased these binoculars because the set in the pressbox had disappeared. I was so impressed with the wide-angle view and with the clarity. With the set I was using before, I would lose track of the the ball and miss the end of plays. With these, I can watch the entire play and clearly identify the players involved. The magnification is perfect for watching sports from the stands or from a pressbox.
Handy for the car or a game. Not for extended viewing.

Summary: These are almost perfect to keep handy in the car to peep out street signs and traffic conditions, or to watch highlights of a game from the cheap seats. The large exit pupil and wide field of view make for quick acquisition of the image, and since there is no need (or ability) to focus, you won't waste any time there. The focus is set for a person with normal vision, so if you need new glasses, these will magnify the deficiencies of your old prescription.
Summary: The product was shipped in a timely manner. The price was as expected. The Binoculars were a gift for my brother. At a football game several weeks later I asked him why he wasn't using his new Binoculars? His response was that they were so far out of alignment that he couldn't look through both lenses at the same time. All the packing material had been long since thrown away so I just ate the purchase. Moral to the story - open and check the product at time of receipt.
Summary: These binoculars are truly remarkable in their clear picture and wide range. They do not need focusing for someone with normal vision, but I wish it were possible to focus so I could take my glasses off to enjoy the complete view. They are a bit bulky in width, but their short length is nice.
