Summary: i purchased the 10x30 is binoculars from amaZon 12/27/07. followed instructions for setting them up and noticed a slight ghost image surrounding the main image, more pronounced when viewing light objects against dark ones, contacted canon and was told to send them in to their repair station in NJ at the cost of $13 for insurance and shiping. when they were returned the enclosed letter said that they met factory specs but would re-adjust and clean them.
Summary: My warranty for this product expired january 07; image stabilization failed 11 weeks later! Factory repair cost quoted as $577.88. I would advise not purchasing Canon image stabilization products based on my experience.
