Summary: These are very good binoculars for the uses I have, namely general use whilst walking, and in particular bird and other animal spotting. They have a good combination of magnification coupled with a useful field of view. The colour rendition also seems much better than with other binos I've used, even at a distance. I wear specs and it has taken me a bit of time to decide on the right combination of relief adjustment for use both with and without my glasses.
Summary: Excellent quality,compact,light to carry. Clarity is superb particularly in low light conditions (used for woodland deer management). Nice grips and easy to handle.Sturdy neck strap supplied and good quality case. The only problem is the flexible plastic eye piece covers - they don't stay on but can live with this as they are adequate enough to keep the rain off.
Summary: 8.5 x 45 gives good balance of magnification, field of view, steady image and low light performance. Good quality optics with fabulous large, bright, sharp image and lovely handling feel with the two individual barrels and a sensible weight. Focusing is excellent, having a nice wide, very smooth wheel and a great balance between accuracy and turns nearest to farthest. Recommended price is too high - great value though at this price.
Summary: For the amateur birder these are the best around at this price. The weight and build quality rival the top of the range binoculars and open up a new world of detailed observation on distant subjects. The lens magnification is spot on for those not looking for low-light early morning birdwatching and offers less shake problems with anything larger.
Summary: 7 years ago I purchase a Binocular for £329.00 until I bought these Nikon's I was very happy with them. The RRP. for this binocular as you can see is just under £700.00.What can I say the quality is obvious & the more I use them the greater I understand the expression 'you get what you pay for'. One point that has stood out to me is the way the Bins brighten the shadows I view.
Pros: Clarity, Contrast, Easy to Use, Excellent in Low Light, Feel in the hand
