perfect IS and SHARP!

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. For birdwatching it helps to stabilize your view so that the 12x magnification is not a drawback. I will never birdwatch or stargaze without these binocs!!
Excerpt: I read a lot of reviews about IS and they were all positive. I thought a lot about spending the extra for this feature. After using them I realized they are amazing , the IS feature is well worth the extra money great binoculars and highly recommended.
Excerpt: I have already used the 15X50 IS binocs several times. I replaced an older pair of Fujinon 14X40 with this Canon pair. The Fujinons do a slightly better job of image stabilization and are great for terrestrial subjects but don't have quite enough light gathering for astronomical use. The Canon 15X50 are very nice with only slight chromatic aberration on very bright objects. Excellent for my purposes.
Pros: Quality Lenses, Strong Construction, Waterproof, Works Well With Glasses
Excerpt: I do not mine spending the $$ for a good piece of gear, whether camera or binoculars. When I got these Binoculars, I took a chance based on reviews. I figured if the binoculars worked half as good as a camera lens stagilizer, I would be ahead of the game. I WAS WRONG, these Bino's are UNBELIEVABLE PERFORMANCE PHENOMINAL producing results that will astound you!
Cons: get a wider softer strap easier on the neck.
Excerpt: The binoculars are a brilliant piece of optics and technology, second to none. They lack not a thing, are extremely dependable & a sturdy well-built, water-resistant, sealed & coated to perfection. There are no others, on the market, that can stabilize, that are as light and yet durable enough to compare to what Canon has created. They serve for a number of uses, most of which have to do with aviation.
Excerpt: Got these last week along with some 58mm screw in filters for the objectives. Yeah, they should be included by Canon, but they are not. And the caps for the eyecups fall off like the other reviewers said. I used the binoculars last night at the Majestic Theatre "Phantom of the Opera". I deliberately got my ticket in Rear Mezz Row L, Seat 14 - this is the farthest row from the stage and up against the wall. I estimate the distance from my seat to center stage as 120 feet.
Pros: Quality Lenses, Strong Construction, Works Well With Glasses
Excerpt: I've had other bincoulars but nothing like the 15x50 from cannon with Image Stabilizer they are the best. Can count the sunflower seed in my bird feeder from 50 yards away. I would puchase the 15x50 again.
Pros: Close Focus, Quality Lenses, Strong Construction, Waterproof, Works Well With Glasses
