  • Excerpt: I love this pair of binoculars. I use it mostly for watching ships at sea. The IS is great to ID the ship and its condition. The case unfortunately is not as great. I am sending it to Canon repair to have it checked out. I hope they can turn around it quickly!

  • Excerpt: I've had mine for almost 6 yrs. They are the primary binoculars on board, we cruise full time and they see use EVERY day! They are light, comfortable, sharp focus, and the stabilization is a must for use on a boat.
  • Pros: compact, lightweight, great focus
  • Cons: rubberized coating getting gooey

  • Excerpt: I have been using these binocs for several years and the IS is perfect and I depend on it. It is particularly beneficial for star-gazing - keeps your view steady while trying to see details and faint objects.

Great Binoculars

Big Swede, Adorama
30 April 2014
  • Excerpt: The stable image they provide allows greater detail to be seen. Not too big and heavy. 12x is really nice. Using mostly for birding. There is a small amount of CA under certain high contrast conditions. There will be a very small number of people who will get dizzy from the IS effect.

  • Summary: These binoculars really held up to my expectations. I have had several marine binoculars in the past but the IS feature is great when viewing on choppy waters, unfavorable weather, and while the boat is in gear.
  • Pros: Image Stabilization
  • Cons: None...

Excellent.

Husband of a happy wife, Adorama
14 January 2014
  • Excerpt: I bought the Canon 12x36 IS II binoculars for my wife. She spends hours looking at birds and deer with my 10x42 European-made binoculars that are three times the cost of the Canons. They also weigh over thirty ounces and are difficult to hold steadily after a short time.
  • Pros: Impressive Is, Lightweight, Quality Lenses

I would highly recommend this product !

  • Pros: Close Focus, Compact, Lightweight, Quality Lenses, Strong Construction
  • Cons: Not Waterproof
