Excerpt: My wife tole me that she wanted a well-built binocular for her birthday and she uses it for bird watching. The first option came to my mind was something made by the Germans, who are known for the optics. I looked at some Leica made products and realized that I may have to break the bank to do this. So, a Minox seemed to be a nice alternative. It's more affordable and still has the quality I was looking for.
Solid, bright and comfortable and relatively cheap.

Summary: Excellent product! I upgraded to these from Bushnell H2O binos and am amazed at the difference in clarity. The focus wheel is silky smooth and it is comfortable to use. The only thing that bothers me is the lack of second compartment in the bino case in which you could put the lens cloth.
Excerpt: I have Macular Degeneration (vision loss), and play poker professionally. If I am sitting at either end of a poker table, I can't see the cards well. I got these Minox for their close focus capability. They are fantastic! They are a little heavy for their size, but that's because of the high quality lenses and ruggedness. Highly recommended.
Pros: Close Focus, Compact, Quality Lenses, Strong Construction, Works Well With Glasses
Summary: Habe das Glas nun eingehend getestet und bin wirklich zufrieden. Kompakt, liegt gut in der Hand, wasserdicht und robust, gut in der Dämmerung nutzbar. Tolles Bild !! Und man kann es aufgrund der kleinen Abmessungen überall mit hinnehmen. Ein Super Preis-Leistungs-Produkt.
