Summary: these are a nice compromise for a serious birdwatcher/ naturalist for those occasions when you want to travel really light. good image esp centrally nice light and smooth focus as a viewer thro' spectacles they work quite well altho' the eye cups have a habit of "unscrewing" from the spec user position.
Summary: I spent many hours reading reviews and forums when getting some new bins as my existing ones 10x42 were too heavy for field work. I finally decided on the Opticron 8x42 Discovery, but due to sticky fingers and stupidity I ordered 8x32 by mistake. I realised this when I opened the box, but I gave them a try anyway and was I pleased!! they were brilliant, light, bright and sharp so much so that I decided to keep them. After a few trips out I am just as pleased.
Summary: I wanted a decent lightweight pair of binoculars to take on longer walks, and these fit the bill perfectly. They really are light. You can hang them round your neck for hours without any discomfort. Despite their plastic build, they are waterproof and they feel solid in the hand. They have a bright image and the focus wheel is smooth.
Summary: Hunting deer in steep mountain sides in Norway this lightweight binoculars are perfect for my use I was very much impressed by the quality and the performance of the binoculars in low light conditions field of view is execellent as well as its sharpness to the edges You really get your money worth choosing this binocular .
