Summary: I would recommend only with reservations. While the optics are a good value for the money, the eyepiece is very stiff and it makes focusing difficult. Frankly, I think 10X is too much for a 25mm objective. I'm going to order a 8X25.
Summary: For the $$, the compact Nikon 8263 Aculon A30 10x25's are Excellent in Features, Performance and Build Quality. The A30 is very close to my BX-3's (a top-tier optical performer), only lacking to the BX-3 in weather proofing and super 3-D Depth-of-field.
Summary: Very convenient size, ultra light weight, excellent optics, great price! I've owned numerous binoch's, but no other ultra-lite set comes close to these. Sorry about that Swarovski & Leica & Zeiss!!!
Summary: These are OK glasses for the money. A good 2nd pair that are light and compact for occasional use or quick looks at things. You will need to spend more money for glasses used for long periods of viewing or fine sharpness and detail.
Summary: I first bought the Vanguard Orros for my daughter and neither of us could get them to focus correctly or get very clear. I ended up sending them back and getting the Nikon instead. I originally was going to get the Nikon but thought I would try something new. Wrong. Stick with what you know works.
