Summary: I have owed different, a few different, types of binoculars and have been a amateur photographer preferring Minolta equipment. What you have here is a very good pair of optics for a decent price. They are smaller than the average pair of 10x50's, more like standard 8x32's, with exceptional clarity, much better than standard 10x50's. They function well and easily pack away in a glove box compartment.
Excerpt: best use is to look at things a long way away!<br />They are clear, low light viewing is very good.<br />Having not owned any other top of the line binoculars I can not compare but find it difficult to see how they could be any better.<br />They are a good weight ergonomic and most importantly great optics.<br />Very happy with my purchase.
Summary: These very well made binoculars were very easy to hold for a reasonably long period, and were very effective in low light situations.One very minor point was that the front lens covers did not always close properly ,making it fiddly to replace in the holder.
