Summary: Quality of optics up to expected standard from Nikon & to get them for £90 means they were a bargain. Slight limitation on close focus but birds are close enough you don't need binoculars. For distance work extra magnification helps with small loss of light as a compromise.
Summary: Having used a scope for planespotting for the 20 years, I thought I would revert to binoculars. A friend had a pair which I had tried. A fantastic offer through Amazon (less than half price), so I purchased a pair.
Summary: Following some of the previous reviews I was a little unsure about purchasing these binoculars. Having now used them I can only praise them, I believe some people were under the impression they were buying the Hubble Space telescope for less than a hundred pounds.
