Summary: I have ordered this product on 20 jan and received it on 29 jan. substantial delay in delivery in this e-commerce age. Packaging was world class by infibeam. Gift wallets are very nice. perfectly stitched. quality is appreciated.
Moving to binocular-earlier i was in doubt .it is original, found packet is in sealed condition. product delivered in good condition. tried it instantly the clarity in zoom. Zoom and focus adjustments work fine.
Summary: I used these for about 5 hours yesterday to spot arrows in targets at about 25 yards and they worked great. I especially like the ability to zoom to 16x. This made spotting the arrows very easy and I was even able to tell when an arrow was touching the line between scoring rings. I don't claim to be an expert, but for the price, these binoculars appear to be very good quality. The zoom feature works well, but you do have to adjust the focus when zooming in or out.
Summary: After reading many reviews, I decided on this binoculars for its price and zoom range. I purchased it new for $60 plus tax in May 2009. We went on an Alaska cruise and continued on with a RV to Denali NP. I used it almost every day extensively and I would definitely say that I am very happy with my decision. It is probably not the best binoculars but for the price and what I need for my trip, I am very happy with it. It has great and clear optics.
Summary: GOt them today , i live in the country side with lots of great views a good test for any binoculars these's are brilliant ,zoom is very good and the wide angle is great for moving object's ie birds etc , i have seen more detail of distant object's than before with more expensive binoculars , time will tell as to how they last but i have no boubt they will be fine as they seem to be very good quality for the money , if you want a pair go for it there great DAVE KEYNSHAM
Summary: Just received these binoculars and they are OK but not great. For Olympus the build quality is pretty poor. The zoom function is OK but not all that strong and the eye relief isn't deep enough for me but would be OK for most people.
Summary: The image is fantastic, they are light enough to chuck in a rucksack and take out and about. On full zoom they are difficult to keep still enough held free hand, you need to support your arms on a wall or similar or by a tripod adaptor. There are cheaper brands available, but get what you pay for, I bought these based on the reputation of Olympus in general.
