Excellent Binoculars

Jack the Opticalman, B&H Photo

  • Excerpt: These give a very nice, immersive view. They're sharp, bright, and reasonably contrasty. They get four stars rather than five because the adjustable right eyepiece does not maintain proper focus when the main focus wheel is adjusted to a different distance. It must be readjusted each time. I don't consider this a deal breaker, but some might. The view thru these is quite nice; better than I expected for the price.
  • Pros: Compact, Quality Lenses, Strong Construction
  • Cons: Difficult To Focus

carson 10x42 close focus binoculars

  • Summary: I love it already! It has exceded my expectations already. VERY light, good image quality, good light gathering, and nice twist-up eye cups. A nice padded neck strap as well. The only cons so far are it is somewhat hard to get into focus with both eyes, but once it is there it focuses fairly well, and the middle focus wheel can be moved out of focus when you move the two halves of the binoculars. But all in all, very good so far.
  • Pros: very light weight, good image quality, twist-up eye cups
  • Cons: somewhat hard to get into focus with both eyes

The best all Rounder

Blunderer, Amazon

  • Summary: For value-for money, these binos are the tops. Their lenses are fine quality, they are light , the field of view is excellent , the image as near perfect as one can find. They have no fancy name attached, and are well below any rival binos in price. The soft green casing is just right to grip , and i can hold these to my eyes for long spells of viewing , without tiring , and i am disabled.
