  • Excerpt: I had read a review of these from a study at Cornell University and bought them w/o trying them in a store. No problems whatsoever. They feel great in my hands, very smooth focus, no problems with using them while wearing my glasses. They have greatly exceeded my expectations. Additionally they are a fantastic value.

Great binocular at a great price.

  • Excerpt: We have Ruby throats and barred owls to watch within 100 feet. This binocular is well worth the money. See the Cornell Laboratory of Ornithology 2013 review of binoculars under $200. ([@]) They are correct about this binocular and B&H is a great source for this product. I received the Celestron cleaning pen as a "discount!

Best bird watching for the price

TheTinkerToad, B&H Photo

  • Excerpt: Mainly used for bird watching on the front porch, they are rugged and we leave them out unless we expect heavy weather. At this price we allow the grandchildren to use them too. My wife says the size is perfect and they fit her hand and come to the eye easily. We have spent more for lesser quality.
  • Pros: Excellent optics

Excellent optics and value for money

  • Summary: Excellent optical quality for the money, with a crisp wide field of view. They also seem pretty portable for a full sized nitrogen filled binocular. On the negative side, I find the focus wheel squeaks slightly on occasion, but is precise and it's certainly easy to find focus even at just over 6ft. There is a feeling corners have been cut slightly with the build, with the white branding rubbing off very easily after a few uses.

  • Summary: Pleased with these Binoculars , small and practical and so far they seem decent value having paid £115. Shoulder Bag provided is a bit basic but actual binoculars seem good quality , only had them about 5 weeks but used them a lot and happy with the purchase.

Great for bird watching

R P THACKRAH, Amazon
13 December 2013
  • Summary: I was looking for some compact & lightweight binoculars for birdwatching. At first I was reluctant to buy without trying them out but had done a fair amount of research on binocular review sites and decided to risk it knowing I could return them if they didn't suit. They arrived very promptly and I am delighted with them. They let in a lot of light and the image is crystal clear with a really wide field of view.

Quite practical

  • Summary: Good optics and focussing. Rubber coating insufficient to prevent noisy knocking. Lens covers fiddly.Used superglue to secure front covers to body,otherwise they fall off.Otherwise good value for money

Crisp and bright images, solid construction

Mr. Kevin Ward, Amazon

  • Summary: I have viewed through many pairs of binoculars expensive and cheap over the last few years. The bargain 7Dayshop specials to the very expensive Swarovskis. You do as they say get what you pay for. We all still like to get good value in our price range. These "Bins" are sharp over all but the very edge and produce a crisp contrasty view with a lot of punch for the price. They have a well built look and feel.

Klasse Fernglass

Dietmar Friedel, Amazon
3 October 2013
  • Summary: Ein tolles Fernglass, das sehr gut für Tier, Natur, und sogar Sternbeobachtung geeignet ist. Es ist sehr robust, griffig, die Gummierung macht den Eindruck als wird sie ewig halten !! Die Handhabung ist einfach, sogar ein Stativ lässt sich anschrauben. Einziger Nachteil, den ich aber gerne in Kauf nehme, das Glas ist kein Leichtgewicht, für seine gut zu handhabende Größe aber auch nicht wirklich zu schwer. Sieht man z.B.
