Excerpt: When using these binoculars for everyday viewing they are hard to top. However when viewing birds with the sky as a backdrop (blue or cloudy)the amount of CA was overwhelming for me. I sent these back reluctantly.
Excerpt: I have never tried a thousand dollar pair of binoculars, but I don't see how you can get any better than these. If you are looking in the 8-12x magnification range, look no further. The 42mm objective lens seems to be the perfect choice, the close focus is superb.
Pros: Brightness, Close Focus, Lens coating, Lightweight, Quality Lenses, Strong Construction, Waterproof, Works Well With Glasses
Excerpt: I use this product in my job to conduct bird surveys and general habitat assessments. These binoculars are clear and make identifying birds very easy. The focus wheel however could have been made to focus more quickly i.e. less rotation. My major problem with this product is the weak construction.
Pros: Close Focus, Not too heavy, Quality Lenses, Works Well With Glasses
Excerpt: These binoculars provide great magnification, excellent resolution, and superb clarity. From observing Big Horn Sheep in the Rocky Mountains to identifying birds in the back yard, these have performed perfectly and are a pleasure to use. Focus is fast and smooth.
Pros: Close Focus, Compact, Quality Lenses, Strong Construction
Conclusion: Good Product. Not cheap, but not going to drain the bank account either. Lightweight and not noticeable when you are wearing them. Make sure to keep the warranty card and the recipt should you need to send them in for repairs.
Pros: These binoculars are light, compact. They are crisp and clear and have the adjustable eyecups for those of you wearing glasses. The price was right, they were not cheap, but they aren't $1800 either. Last year I sat and glassed a hillsided for Elk and Mule Deer and found more than my buddy who ha...
Cons: Couple of things I have had problems with. I may be a little rough on my equiptment, but it gets used a lot. I have had issues with the twist out eyecups. If they get dirty, or knocked around a little bit, they stuck either up or down, and had a slight angle to them. Of course me being Irish, I u...
Excerpt: In October, 1996, I purchased a pair of Nikon 10X42 Superior "E" porro-prism binoculars. Although I got them through Le Naturaliste in Quebec, they actually came direct from Nikon in Toronto, since Le Naturalist does not stock them.
Summary: These binoculars are light to wear and give a good bright image. The eye cups screw out to allow adjustment for spectacle wearers and there is diopter correction. Focus is quick and easy to use. Image is pretty good with very slight colour fringing. For the money pretty good.
