Excellent value

  • Excerpt: My wife and I like to travel and look at wildlife. Specifically I wanted a zoom to better acquire the animal at 8x and then zoom to wherever. I did want a compact and I did not want to spend tons of cash. I gave this product 5 stars because it delivers what I wanted and the cost was very reasonable.
  • Pros: Compact, Lightweight, Quality Lenses

Excellent product, easy to use and was persuaded by previous reviewers comments.

  • Summary: Before deciding on which product to purchase, I went through many reviewers comments. These were excellent and led me to the purchase of this item with which I am very happy indeed. Easy to use, excellent light gathering for such small lenses. Ideal, easy to fit into jacket pockets etc.

Good buy

  • Summary: The binoculars are of a very good mechanical quality, robustly built, and smaller than expected (ca 11 x 11 x 5 cm; the numbers on top in the product details are not correct; but those later in the table are). They are quite light (ca 200g) but still give a good feel when used.

Good value

  • Summary: A decent pair of binoculars for the price. Make sure that you read the straightforward setting up instructions - it makes a big difference. One small gripe is that a metal zoom lever would be beneficial both in finding it quickly and possibly a little more robust than the short plastic lever.

Good value

  • Summary: Bought as present. Good quality and value for money but small (25mm) lens doesn't let as much light through as 40mm lenses (which it was swapped for). As always, the more you pay the better quality you get.

Olympus 8-16 x 25 Zoom PC I Binoculars

Mr. K. A. Slegg "KAS", Amazon
29 December 2012
  • Summary: A light weight and compact pair of Binoculars. I went for this zoom range (8-16) as I thought the 10-30 zoom would suffer from too much shake at higher zooms, so I thought the slightly wider 'x8' of this pair was more usable. Highly recommended.

Not sure about these!

Sally, Amazon

  • Summary: Bought these binoculars on the strength of a Which review but am not very pleased with them. Once you have managed to focus them they are very good but terrible to get into the correct position. By the time you have positioned them the subject of your interest (ie wild bird) has gone.

Zoom not working

Amazon Customer, Amazon
20 December 2012
  • Summary: The performance and visual quality of these binoculars at 8x25 was very good, however the zoom was only working in one lens, so I can't comment on this feature until I get my replacement, hence 3 stars.
