Good Optics and Effective Image Stabiliser - but heavy!

Summary: If you have a need for powerful binos at home or in the car these may be for you. However their weight is such that they are impractical for carrying any great distance unless you are very dedicated.
Summary: I was a bit weary ordering this from Amazon Warehouse because it stated that there maybe some cosmetic damage to the case or accessories. I needn't have worried. The product arrived on time and as new.
Summary: Last year I purchased two pairs of binoculars both of which I would describe as superb. One was a Helios Quantum 4 15X70 and the other a Strathspey waterproof 10X50. The Helios are utterly amazing with the 70mm objective lens giving a great 4.5 field of view.
Summary: I've owned and used these for nearly two and a half years to date and really can't find any fault. The are robust, rugged and weatherproof and give superb image quality. The image stabilising is worth its weight, removing virtually all jitter from the view.
Summary: The 15X50 bins arrived safely packed inside the carry case. However, a small piece of plastic had snapped off from the lock on the case so that it couldn't be opened. The whole package had to be returned. I used Royal Mail and the package arrived back at Middleton Banks within 24hrs.
