  • Excerpt: Yes these are larger, bulkier and heavier than a conventional binocular but no other binocular type gives you the ability to see incredible detail by eliminating shake. I have a couple dozen binoculars from cheap to Leica and these totally obsolete them all. I haven't tried the other Canon models but these 10X42L models are just absolutely clear and sharp with a wide angle of view, too.
  • Pros: Close Focus, Quality Lenses, Strong Construction, Waterproof, Works Well With Glasses
  • Cons: Bulky, Heavy

So very disappointed

  • Conclusion: I have two pair of Canon IS binoculars. I really think they are exceptional... when they work. My 10x42Ls just froze up again. The first time, only a few years ago, the repair was half the cost of a new pair as everything electronic needed replaced. I do not carry these often, perhaps four times a year. Pitiful. I'm about to leave on an annual trip and almost as if it were scripted, they died again. I couldn't be more disappointed.

Extension Of The Eyes

  • Conclusion: the Canon 10x42 IS binoculars are by far the best, most useful and most used, I own. This unit will focus to 8.5' from the viewer. Being a ammeter naturalist / photographer. One of the things I do with them is look at stuff that is only 10 or so feat away.. Dragonflies, butterflies , frogs, and so on. These work really well for this. Vibration is more noticeable at closer distances.

Excellent product

  • Excerpt: I use this for nature watching. The stabilization works great and really helps when you are trying to track animals and birds. It is totally waterproof and you don't have to worry about it getting wet or dirty. It comes with a very nice case with a small pocket for extra batteries.The diopter ring tends to get unlocked easily. Not a big deal.
  • Pros: Compact, Lightweight, Quality Lenses, Strong Construction, Waterproof

10X42 L IS WP by Canon

  • Excerpt: As a sailor I am always looking for buoys - so these are what I have wanted since the 80s. Lens clarity is remarkable! I am very pleased. Structurally, the battery storage area could be beefed up, I see it is a point of failure. The IS feature is not as effective as desired.
  • Pros: Quality Lenses
  • Cons: Is Function Not As Effect, Poor Construction, Unstable

The clearest view from any binoculars I have ever used.

  • Summary: Last weekend my wife said, "These binoculars are worth every penny you paid for them" as she was watching wildlife out the living room window. Before I bought the "L" glass Canon binoculars, I went to Mike's Camera in Boulder, CO and compared the Canon 10X30 and 15X50 non-L versions. Both had significant chromatic aberration, particularly if the image was a bit out of focus. The 15X was also awfully heavy.

I'm impressed.

  • Excerpt: I'll probably never give a five star rating. These are an impressive piece of gear. I've used several sets of 7x50 marine binoculars. Some big names have fogged as soon as they were in a damp environment. Others have been my go-to's and never failed after some tough use. I'm a Canon camera user and familiar with their "L" lenses, so I was going to be a tough sell. I'm very happy with the 10x42 L IS glasses.
