Summary: The ProStaff 5, 10x42 binoculars are among the best I've used for general viewing and casual astronomy. Despite not having ED optics or phase coatings on the prisms, this product delivers a sharp, flat field that is exceptionally wide at over 50 degrees (apparent) for 10x.
Summary: I bough these are a back up and for trips in Africa. After spending glossing all day in a very bright day in London, I can can say that I am very pleased with the quality of the optics and even better the way they feel in the hands.
Summary: I have taken these out on two outings so far. I can only comment on my initial impressions. They are fairly easy to hold for extended periods (say, 1-2 minutes of birdwatching) and the image was amazingly bright. I chose the 10x42 specially for the clearer images at dusk and dawn.
Summary: I picked these up right before elk season this year. They are clear, gather good light at dawn and dusk, great product for the money. Clearer than several more expensive binos I tried in a side by side comparison.
Excerpt: I carry these on outdoor photo assignments as well as events such as a Scott Kelby Photo Walk and similar walks. I can check out potential scenes, subjects and location details which helps make the day more productive. The images are sharp, clear and easily viewed.
Summary: My husband and I live near a wooded area. We are retired and decided to take up bird watching. The binoculars we purchased at Cabela's are excellent for that task. Nikon Prostaff is easy to see with the eyeglass adjustment. Both of us wear glasses. The staff at Cabela's were wonderful to work with.
