Great for boating

Capt. Steve, Canon

  • Conclusion: 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

Don't use with sunscreen on your hands

  • Excerpt: The image stabilization works beautifully but if you get sunscreen lotion (or other oils) on the body, the surface will become a tacky black mess that will leave smears on anything that comes in contact with it. IMO, that's not a wise choice of material. Estimate: $350 to replace the body.

OK for general usage, but not great

  • Excerpt: I bought these for use on a trip to AK, on board a cruise ship. I think they work well when viewing from a platform that is not as steady as when on firm ground. I'm an avid birder and find them to be quite nice for providing a slightly larger image than my 10 power binocs.
  • Pros: Lightweight, Steady image
  • Cons: 3 year warranty, Cheap eyecups, Not waterprooffogproof, Poor close focus, Poor diopter adj

Nice binocs, but with a couple problems

Birder, B&H Photo

  • Excerpt: I use these binocs for birding and really like the clear image and extra magnification I can get with the image stabilization. They are not too heavy. There is an apparent design flaw I feel with the eye cups though.

User Review

  • Excerpt: Die Stabilisierung funktioniert einwandfrei, wenn sie funktioniert. Jedoch ist sie sehr Stossanfällig. Bei Dämmerung ist das Glas nicht mehr zu gebrauchen. Viel zu lichtschwach!! Bei ausreichendem Licht ist das Binokular jedoch gut zu gebrauchen.
