Summary: I am VERY impressed with these; I compared to Nikons at double the price, and these are better! The build quality is very good, and comes supplied with a neck strap and carry/ protective case, along with end caps to protect all four lenses. The focus adjust is firm and smooth for accurate focusing.
Summary: No expert but these came highly recommended. The image is very crisp and almost gives a 3D affect. I've only looked at birds and some landscape and have been very impressed with the detail I've seen. The night sky is what I really bought theses bins for but thus far the clouds have not been kind.
Summary: Everything is perfect. Solid built. Excellent range of focus. It suits very well for amateur star gazing. But use for more than 20 minutes is not easy (I say this after buying without tripod with overconfidence). And you wont feel like keeping it down within 20 minutes because of it's crisp focus.
... Heronry at a range of 200 metres and give excellent clarity and give me no problems

Summary: The binoculars are being used to observe a Heronry at a range of 200 metres and give excellent clarity and give me no problems , even though I wear varifocal spectacles. They are light and are no problem when worn around the neck for long periods.
Excerpt: This is my first personal binocular. Although I'm familiar with celestron 15x70 and 25x100, they just weren't in my price range. I have used Nikon Action 50 mm binos, and honestly , there's not much difference in these two, and you get Olympus 50 mm at a lower price.
Pros: Close Focus, Compact, Quality Lenses, Strong Construction, Waterproof, Works Well With Glasses
