Summary: I recently bought a pair of these binos and I love them. The low light capabilities are amazing. When its dark I can very easily see things through the binoculars that I barely see with my bare eyes. They are very light weight and have very good glass in them. The only problem I have had is with the twist out eye cups. I don't think it is a manufacturer problem because I got some sand in them now one of them won't stay out.
Summary: Best I've ever owned for the following reasons: - Crystal clear image, even with very little light. - Rubberized body coating makes for a confident grip, even in wet conditions. - Narrow compact design. - Adjustable eye pieces, when wearing sun glasses. Combined with an S4Gear lockdown harness, it's been the perfect combo for biking and bird watching. ONLY gripe is with the eye piece lens cover accessory. - It is too loose and falls off with the slightest bump.
Summary: needed some binos but baulked at the idea of paying top money for european quality, was looking around for some mid range, spotted these and at the excellent price were a no brainer, if they weren't up to it i hadn't lost too much. i can live without the last 20 minutes of twilight at this price.
Summary: Very Nice Binoculars. Mine Were Second Hand And Reconditioned so Looked New. I've Been Using these Daily On My Farm, Mostly Used For Watching Cattle, And So Far I'm Delighted! They've Been Used In Rain, Handled With Muddy Hands And Washed Under A Tap. No Problems. Optics Are Sharp Right To The Edge And Bright In Low Light.
Summary: I found these binoculars to be an excellent upgrade from my 8 x 25s. Good focus and they sit comfortably in my hands. Also, not too heavy to hold up for a prolonged period, which was a concern, going from a lightweight Nikon. Ideal for bird watching.
Summary: Ich bin unterwegs im Wald und benötige öfters das Glas beim Bogenschießen zur Auswertung der Treffer. Es erfüllt hervorragend seinen Zweck. Hatte vorher ein kleines 8x25 in Verwendung, doch das ist kein Vergleich. Schärfe und Lichtausbeute sind bei diesem Nikon 8x42 tadellos. Bin absolut zufrieden. Die Okularabdeckungen werden ohnehin fast bei jedem Glas schlecht bewertet.
