Excerpt: I was looking for something small and lightweight for hiking. I quickly learned that the really compact ones just don't have the combination of magnification and brightness that I was hoping for.
Excerpt: These were purchased as a gift for my wife as her introductory binoculars to birding. So far she loves them however she has no frame of reference for comparison. They are bright and give excellent magnification.
Excerpt: These are heavy binoculars compared to what I had been using, but the sightlines are better and the (low) price is right. The close focus, bright colors and Nikon quality make for a nice birdwatching experience. They seem right for an urban birder -- tough, simple, modest magnification.
Pros: Close Focus, Optics, Strong Construction, Tough
Excerpt: I needed a small pair of binoculars to supplement my 10 X 42 monocular and larger astro binocs. The Nikon 7X35's were just the ticket! The view is crisp and bright; much better than I anticipated. I've used them for back yard birding and will certainly pack them on my next field trip.
Pros: Close Focus, Lightweight, Quality Lenses, Waterproof, Works Well With Glasses
Excerpt: I purchased this particular binocular for the cost as compared to other binoculars. The quality was above all the rest in the same price range. Would buy it again, but I have only on grandson. It is his Xmas gift from me.
Pros: Close Focus, Compact, Quality Lenses, Strong Construction
Excerpt: This was a Christmas gift for our 12-year old granddaughter. She loves stargazing and these are just the right size for her. And what great binoculars! What amazed us even more is that a case and a really good quality strap were included! And you just cannot beat the price.
Pros: Close Focus, Compact, Lightweight, Quality Lenses, Strong Construction, Works Well With Glasses
