Summary: I was looking for small binoculars with better light characteristics. These binoculars are a little larger than I wanted (small-medium size), but they are very bright and the zoom feature is a nice bonus. Definitely worth the price.
Excerpt: I use the Nikon 8-24x25 Aculon T11 Binoculars for mostly for nature, spotting birds and critters. But also for checking out roofs, antennas and power lines. I have a big Nikon 12x56, and a Carl Zeiss set that was a waste of money. The Nikon 8-24x25 are just as good, lighter, way way cheaper.
Summary: I bought the binoculars because Nikon products are top quality I have purchased rifle scopes by Nikon and they have performed as well as items priced much higher.The clarity is top of the line,and are well built.
Excerpt: Bought these as replacements for a Pentax that was good but destroyed by 9yr old kid. These have a better zooming mechanism and better overall quality. Used predominately for travel; very good optics, reasonable weight and size, and well balanced usual trade wrt zoom.
