  • Summary: I'll probably use these now as a trend, because I'm getting too old to carry better but heavier ones as much.
  • Pros: Compact, Lightweight, Waterproof, Works Well With Glasses
  • Cons: Field Is Too Narrow

  • Summary: Very good binoculars, lightweight, fit easily into my bag, and a gorgeous colour (magenta). The strap is comfortable and does not dig into the neck when walking around. I just need to remember to take the lens caps off before I use them(!). I received a free pair of binoculars from the National Trust and these Olympus ones are much, much better.

I now believe it would have been a better choice - image brightness is more important than magnification ...

  • Summary: Light and compact to carry. Focusing wheel a bit stiff - hoping this will improve with use. Image is a bit brighter than similar spec, older compacts I have used from other manufacturers. I understand the next model up has a larger diameter objective and although significantly more expensive, I now believe it would have been a better choice - image brightness is more important than magnification especially when bird watching.

  • Summary: Good image, compact, light and waterproof. Excellent value. Much more likely to carry these than larger binoculars which are theoretically better.

Excellent quality for compact binoculars

JOHNCB, Amazon

  • Summary: I work shifts on the short sea trade and like to carry my own binoculars which need to be lightweight and fit in my pocket. These are therefore ideal. I hadn't originally planned to order the "pearl white" but since the normal silver was out of stock it didn't matter. Since using them the pearl white has actually proven to be very useful since it makes them easy to find if I put them down on the dark ship's bridge.
