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: 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
Summary: I am not an expert of binoculars. I had a pair of cheap Bushnell binoculars and they never convinced me or my wife. I decide to buy this one from Nikon and pay a little bit more but it is worth the money. Easy to find the subjects, clear view and sharp and not to heavy I recommend it-
Summary: I Purchased these elsewhere but I am extremely impressed, These are a great size not too big or small and the optical quality is outstanding for the price they rival the quality that I normally expect in £1000 + photographic lenses!
Summary: These binoculars provide a crisp and clear image much brighter than expected. For spectacle wearers the twist down eye cups give a view almost 100% of that used without glasses. The best all round performance I could find at this price.
