Summary: I have used other large, clumsy binoculars that I found impossible to focus. This binocular is the perfect size and easy to focus and zoom. I ordered it from Walmart as a gift on a Tuesday and I needed it by Friday. It arrived on Thursday!... so, all-around, I was more than happy with the service and the product. (I had checked multiple other sites and not only was the item more expensive, but none offered delivery that would have arrived in time.
Summary: These are incredible entry level high-end birding binoculars. The clarity is amazing. Doing a little research pays off when buying binoculars. Check out the 2005 binocular review page at Cornell Ornithology Department. Bought these for my wife for mothers day and both of us couldn't be happier!
Summary: I use these for sporting events and in any other situations where I wish to be more clear about what is off in the distance. They are comfortable to hold-but a bit big. I have big hands-so this is not a problem for me. Also the weight is a bit heavy-but not bad. I have had compact pairs and these are clearly more to carry-but they are easy to focus and the lenses are very good-as are all Nikon products. I recommend them.
