Summary: Was looking for some first time binoculars just for seaside/walking/aircraft viewing. This Olympus model seemed to fit our need and budget. So far have been very pleased with the results and these are ideal for strapping to a belt or popping into a coat pocket, just what we needed. Product arrived well packaged, on time and would recommend these and the supplier.
Summary: Same old story, you get what you pay for. I have purchased many mini binoculars over the past few years, one for the car and one for my friends boat. All where average, so I thought I would go to the next level and the Olympus binoculars are excellant and have a great focus. If you want a great pair of binoculars without spending too much money these are the ones.
Summary: I was given a pair of these as a Birthday present by my Dad. I use them mostly for watching wildlife when canoeing and they're great for this. Very light with a nice bright image, they may not be up to the standard of a full on pair of quality binos but as a light pair to carry with you which won't break the bank they're excellent. They're definitely a big step up from the ultra cheap pair that I used for this task before.
Summary: I've never had binoculars before as I had thought they would be heavy and not suited to my short sight. I was encouraged by other reviewers and I'm very pleased with the purchase. I took them on a recent trip to Iceland and got great views of volcanoes, glaciers, and the layout of Reykjavik from the church tower. I think these are excellent for a first time user, especially for appreciating scenery and wildlife.
