Loved them but...

Sagebrush, Canon
3 December 2013
  • Conclusion: The image stabilization works beautifully and for viewing game at high power and long ranges it is essential. I really was amazed at the stabilization. I did not feel however that the optics quality and clarity was up to the price tag! If they put the system together with better optics I will be all over it. Two other minor complaints were the lack of lens covers and the weird eye cups.
  • Pros: image stabilization
  • Cons: no lens covers, strange eye cups

EX Value and IS is great! If using in difficult light, buy Zeiss or Swaro.

avickers, Ebay
6 February 2012
  • Summary: This is an amazing optical system. The IS System is stellar and for normal lighting, I highly recommend these binoculars. However, control of light in difficult circumstances is not up to the standard of the world-class (European) optics -- Zeiss and Swarovski, in particular. I compared these against a pair of Zeiss NightOwl 10x56 P*T* binoculars and the optical coatings of the Canons didn't stand up well against this 15+ year-old technology in difficult lighting...

Best handheld binocs for the power

greasemonkey7, epinions.com
3 October 2011
  • Summary: Unrivalled powerful stable image, just needs strong hands to hold for long periods. Can't be beat for tripod free viewing of moving subjects.
  • Pros: Stable image for the super power, rugged for outdoors, good low light optics
  • Cons: Too big and heavy for small hands, eats batteries, IS image can drift

Excellent piece of optics

khansh-half, Ebay
19 February 2011
  • Summary: It has very good/excellent optics. It has very good image stabilizer. It does not completely compensate for the vibrations. However, removes them considerably. The image appears a little blurry because of working of the image stabillizer to reduce large vibrations. Despite the small amount of blurr, It has no match.

Fantastic Optical Clarity

HACCP Ranger, Canon
11 February 2011
  • Conclusion: Use my Canon binoculars for hunting and camping. These give excellent optical clarity, as you are able to see deer and turkey from a long distance against dark background. Works equally well during dusk and dawn, excellent light gathering clarity. Also use for star gazing during camping trips and stabilization eases the need for a tripod. Is the go to for most hunting trips where a blind and wait are essential.
  • Pros: optical clarity, image stabilization, easy to use with heavy gloves
  • Cons: heavy and slightly bulky

CANON IS (15x50)

burkeday, Ebay
7 December 2009
  • Summary: This is an excellent "stabilization" piece that far exceeds its performance to price value. Vendor was very slow, but the great product saved the sale.
