Excerpt: I purchased a Monarch 5 12x42 from B&H which works great, but I needed more magnifying power to see more details on birds. So I thought I give the Aculon a shot. I didn't expect it to be brighter (it has a smaller exit pupil) or clearer than the monarch, but definitely expected it to have more...
Excerpt: You don't have to break the bank to buy these binoculars. Besides this they are quite effective in spotting the target a long distance away. Using them, I was able to see roughly 100 yards away.
Pros: Close Focus, Lightweight, Quality Lenses, Strong Construction, Works Well With Glasses
Excerpt: These binoculars are definitely worth their cost. The image is clear. I use the binoculars for "spotting" mostly.I use a Nikon camera and scope for hunting and I have been very satisfied with their products.Bought these after doing much research with comparibility tests.
Excerpt: I wanted something with more power that wouldn't break the bank - these 16x50's fill the bill nicely - they are crisp , clear and easy to focus. They are not easy to hold steady offhand , but with effort it is possible.
Excerpt: Can you say "Superman"? Now I can, with these far reaching binoculars! What a treat to see things so close-up, with an excellent sharpness in the center field of view, as I have discovered, with all the Aculons I have tried so far.
Pros: Best Value For Money, Quality Lenses, Super Easy Focus Wheel
Excerpt: Started my interest in stargazing with a telescope (too cumbersome), then a higher power pair of binoculars (too zoomy!) and have come to love these. They are sharp and easy to focus and not too large. BIG thanks to B&H for helping me finally find the proper fit for me! I'll have these a long time.
Pros: Compact, Quality Lenses, Sharpness, Strong Construction
Excerpt: I use these for wildlife spotting, and coming from a 10X pair to the 16X pair is definitely something I should have done YEARS ago! My only complaint is the cheap caps that are included with them, they are pretty much worthless and are what prevents me from giving these binoculars a higher rating.
Excerpt: I recently moved to Newport, Oregon and wanted to be able to view wildlife and see the ships at sea. These binoculars blew me away. They provide so much detail...my girlfriend and I are truly impressed and amazed.
