Great for cruising - except one issue

Capt. Steve, B&H Photo
8 July 2014
  • 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. The only problem I have is the rubberized coating on the exterior is turning into a sticky goo. It sticks to hands, the case, anything it contacts.
  • Pros: Compact, Lightweight, Quality Lenses
  • Cons: Coating Becomes Gooey, Not Waterproof

Great Canon quality

  • Excerpt: I use these to spot birds for bird photography. I find them easy to use once you get used to the positioning of the focus and IS buttons. The IS works well. Needed to buy lens caps seperately which is a bit of a shame.
  • Pros: Close Focus, Image Stabilisation, Quality Lenses, Strong Construction

Wonderful!

  • Excerpt: We watch bald eagles from our windows and these are great for being able to view them very clearly and without any shaking. We marvel at the technology that allows the process to occur. They are a little heavy, which is the only reason we didn't give them 5 stars. We would highly recommend them.

Canon 12 x 36 II Image Stabilized

Chief Mate, B&H Photo
2 June 2010
  • Excerpt: Ordered Nikon 12X, Canon 12X and Canon 10 WP Binocs - all with Image Stabilization.Planned on keeping the best one. I really wanted to like the Nikon's - but the image jumps and lags - which makes me seasick - even on land (and I'm a professional mariner). The expensive Canon 10x WP didn't work with my eyes - they had vignetting - black shadows around the outer edges, no matter how I adjusted them. The Canon 12x II's were by far the best for me - and the best value.
  • Pros: Close Focus, Lightweight, Quality Lenses

Great Binos !

Don, B&H Photo
31 May 2010
  • Excerpt: We have wanted & needed a new pair of binos for some time. We love these Canon 12x36 IS II binos and they are really great for general use, bird/wildlife watching, and some night sky observing. The IS system is truly impressive and makes these binos seem "bigger" in terms of their optics. They are not small, but as a mid-sized bino, they can be hiked with.
  • Pros: Image stabilization, Quality Lenses, Somewhat compact, Strong Construction
  • Cons: A Bit Bulky, Light Duty Case, No Obj Lens Caps

Amazing Technology, but not quite ready for astronomy

r0adrashed, Ebay
8 December 2009
  • Summary: I am quickly becoming somewhat of a binocular nut as they apply to Astronomy. I purchased these in hopes of being able to allow me to wander the Milky Way untethered by a tripod, or unburdened from the oppressive weight of other good binoculars that I own. This binocular achieved both of these goals quite well. I fully appreciated the lighter weight and how the binocular fit in my hands.
