Well Worth The Money
25 March 2011
Summary: I had a pair of these--earlier model--for years. Great for sport spectating & travel. Dropped them from a bleacher (55th row). Since then have been using some cheesy Bushnells. Glad to be back with the Nikons, there is really no comparison--easy to focus, sharp clear vision.
Summary: A few years back I treated myself to some Leica Duovids. Super binoculars but too heavy - the result being I seldom take them out when on foot. The hunt was on for a good quality, lightweight alternative.
Summary: I love these binoculars so much that they now stay in my glove box for when I'm out in the country for an impromptu walk. They are very well made - they claim to be shoc proof and water proof though I haven't dropped or soaked them yet to test that.
Summary: It's 33 years since I bought my last (and first) pair of binoculars which are still going strong and in constant use to view wildlife in the back garden. As I'm getting older I thought it would be helpful to have a pair to keep in the car rather than having to remember to take the one pair with me...
Summary: A little heavier than my old Travelight binocs which I accidentally dropped into water. These are waterproof (probably accounting for the additional weight) according to the spec. A bonus for me. They are very sharp and produce a clear image. The build quality is excellent.
