Summary: Being a keen 'birder' for over 45 years, I have used many pairs of binoculars, some costing £00s. These are equal to the best I have ever used. For the price, they are truly astounding value with the addition advantage that they are very sturdy a will easily fit into a large coat pocket
Summary: I recieved a pair of these free when I joined the BTO last autumn. They are very compact, light and excellent for carrying around on the walks, on the hill etc when a larger heavier pair might get left at home. Clear crisp image. If you are looking for a cheap but good quality pair of compact bins than these are well worth considering.
Summary: I'm really pleased with these binoculars. The retracting eye pieces are a great idea. The image is very clear and sharp. Can't fault them and great value for money. Just shows that you don't have to pay a fortune for a really good pair of compact binoculars.
Great budget lightweight binoculars by quality manufacturer

Summary: These are recommended and sold by BTO although I wouldn't use them for survey work. Opticron make high spec binoculars and have a respected name. I mostly appreciate their compactness and light weight.
