Excerpt: If you are looking for a super nice pair of binoculars in the price range of $ you have just found them! I have been using my Pentax 8x36 and I can say the binos are excellent. In fact I believe that to get something better you'd have to spend $300. Optical performance is exceptional. The sharpness and clarity are very high indeed. They are very well made and joy to use. 5 stars and my highest recommendation.
Pros: Compact, Lightweight, Quality Lenses, Strong Construction, Waterproof, Works Well With Glasses
Excerpt: I'm a casual birder and occasionally take binoculars to musical events if I can't get great seats. These seem to have great visuals, but are a little larger and heavier than I hoped for. On the other hand, I wanted a pair with this strength, so I suppose the size comes with the territory.
