Sticky cover

  • Excerpt: These are hard to rate. Optically they are very good and the image stabilizer works well so functionally they get 5 stars. The problem is that after about 2 years the black case starts to disintegrate. It gets all sticky and rubs off on everything.
  • Pros: Close Focus, Compact, Quality Lenses
  • Cons: Poor Construction

These do not last

Bloke, Canon

  • Conclusion: My first pair of these binoculars were great when new. After about 4 years the image stabilizing mechanism froze. Although I live about one mile from the coast, the Canon Factory Service said that they were corroded. Repairs would be almost the cost of a new pair...which I bought.
  • Pros: light weight very sharp for size.
  • Cons: not durable, not the quality one expects from canon

Good but with issues...

  • Excerpt: On the positive side the optics and the IS are great giving a clear view of what you are looking at. On the negative side the build quality is poor. The anti-slip finish stars wearing off immediately (even though they are lightly used and carried in my camera bag) and before long both the eyepieces...
  • Pros: Quality Lenses

Chromatic Aberration?

Halibut, B&H Photo
16 January 2008
  • Excerpt: Was surprised, knowing Canon's reputation for its optics, to see a red fringe or flare around bright white objects in sunlight - specifically the head of a bald eagle. All other features are very good, especially the stabilization.
  • Pros: Stablization
  • Cons: Red Fringe

Slightly underwhelmed...

  • Summary: Swayed by excellent reviews everywhere, I decided to break the bank and go for Canon's Image Stabilising technology when choosing a new pair of binoculars. As you'd expect from Canon, image quality is excellent, they're really pin sharp.

  • Summary: I purchased 2 pairs of these and with both of them I have a ghosting effect around the subject I am looking at, it is extremely annoying. I am not sure if that ghosting effect is normal (for an IS bin ) or if both my bins are defective.
