Summary: This was Just what I needed to carry out a survey of Oak Processionary Moth nests along with many other volunteers in one of our local parks. It will also be of great benefit in general wildlife observation.
Summary: These binoculars are nice. But not so great if we compare the prices. I have a bit smaller binoculars as well of some other brand, which are around half of price. Those product comparable images too.
Summary: Great pair of binoculars, not too heavy around your neck, good bright image and easy to use, all of which I was looking for without spending too much so that I don’t cry if I bash them about when I’m out and about. The only problem is the lens covers provided, they are totally impractical for out in the field.
Summary: I bought these for my girlfriend who enjoys birdwatching and looking at wildlife. Very good optics, well built and ideal for the job. Only slight niggle is that the lens caps do not have a way of keeping them attached when you remove them so that they don't get lost. This is only a very minor point. Other than that they are great value for money.
Summary: I wanted a powerful but not too bulky pair of binos for a trip to South Africa, although i was concerned about poor comments concerning roof prisms these seemed to fit the bill. They are incredible powerful allow plenty of light in and are easily transported. The only possible criticism is that the eyepiece covers are not captive so need to be stored in the case, this is not a significant problem now I'm used to it.
Summary: What do you need from a pair of binoculars? To see things closer. These do that. I wanted a new pair of bins to use at the Olympic Opening Ceremony, they were very good for the occation. I was able to pick out details of individuals and felt close to the action. They were also useful for spying on Seb Coe, Gary Lineker and Sue Barker! Not to mention getting a good look at Her Majesty.
Summary: These binocs perform superbly, watching the sailing Olympics recently and in general use around the house, from watching birds to looking at the stars. The image is bright, clear and crisp and they are both light and easy to handle and easy to focus. I'd set out to buy the well reviewed Nikon Action VII 10x40's and also looked at a similar pair of Bushnells. Encouraged to try the more expensive Sporter, the difference in brightness is amazing.
Summary: Bought these a few weeks ago, and extremely happy. I previously had very old but very good quality 7x50 bins from the 1950s, which I had passed down to me by my grandfather. They were pin sharp with fantastic glass, but extremely heavy. One of the prisms was loose too, so after a decade of living with poor alignment, I decided to invest in a new pair. The Nikons are pleasingly modern and light, small, powerful (x10) and very comfortable to use.
Summary: Jambo/Salaama: Binoculars become personal like your cameras. With so many out there and prices varing from £50 to over £2000, what should one do? Well, it all depends on, for what you are going to use them and your pocket. The strength of them also vary. 10x42 OR 8x42 OR 10x25 OR more! 10 represents the strength of the mirror and 42 represents the distant.
