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.
Summary: Bought five pairs for observing birds with school children. Bought along with a few camlink binoculars of the same magnification. The difference in quality is obvious. The specific Olympus binoculars are lightweight and sturdy. The image is excellent. Certainly recommended.
Summary: These binoculars are actually clearer than I expected given the 21mm objective lens. The centre focal adjustment is a little stiff but this is probably no bad thing as I expect them to loosen up with use. They are easily adjusted for interpupillary distance, which I have previously found more diffucult on some compact binoculars with small eye pieces and a double hinge arrangement. The image is also quite bright and true in colour.
Summary: These are brilliant! Really bright image, no purple fringes and edge to edge sharp. Easy and smooth to focus. Very close near focus. The bodies are made of plastic which makes them very small and light but the optics are excellent.
Summary: I bought these binoculars specifically for a trip to Borneo and Malaysia for the time that we were spending in the jungle. I've never owned a pair before and all I knew was that I wanted something compact, light, splash / moisture resistant (for the humidity), and reasonably around £50. I took some advice from an avid birdwatcher and the amazon reviews and these were the ones that ticked the boxes.
Summary: I chose this rating as these binoculars are a great product. Compact and well built and has a long range of sight. I would recommend this product to anyone who wants binoculars that fit into the pocket or handbag.
