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. Just remember...you are not spending $800 so do not expect $800 of capability.
  • 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. for my requirement for aircraft spotting. Highly recommended.

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.

  • 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 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. Images are sharp across the whole zoom range and reasonably bright given the objective diameter of 2.5cm. Brightness is certainly good enough for day time use.

Not sure about these!

  • 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. Hoping they get better with use but at the moment am finding them very frustrating!
