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.
Excerpt: These Nikon binoculars are very clear, offering amazing quality viewing! I have used these to whale watch from the beach, and was very impressed at how crystal clear the whales were, especially considering they were at least a half mile out to sea!
Excerpt: I am using it to see stars and planets. I have a telescope, but this binocular when fixed on a tripod shows good images. Due to the 50mm and less magnification than the telescope, the images are brighter and of a greater area, (Pleiades for instance).
