Summary: I bought these because I trust Olympus quality. At this price the binoculars exceeded my expectations by a mile. They are easy to focus and because they are well balanced they feel good in the hand. They are slightly larger than expected, but they still fit in my handbag. Over all I am very pleased with my purchase.
Summary: these binoculars are fine for my personal use although because I wear glasses I do find them a bit strange to use, I hope to find best way to use them with time, other than that they suit me fine.
Summary: These binoculars are so lightweight. They fit into a small bag, which is great for taking out to spot things. Just got back from holiday and they were superb. Yes you can pay more but the quality of the lenses on these is as expected from a brand leader of such objects. I would recommend these for anyone on a tight budget.
Summary: Really good product. Couple of things to look out for - someone else reviewed this and said the eye piece didn't open wide enough for a man's head - probably because they did what I did and looked through the wrong end to start with! It is the end with the lens covers on that are the eyepieces, not the other way round!
