Summary: I bought this for my father in law who is a keen bird watcher. He has not stopped using them and raving about them since we gave them to him. He tells us that the quality of the optics is amongst the best he has ever seen. They are also a nice weight and come in a handy case which is ideal when out walking.
Pros: Durable, Good quality optic, Lightweight, Simple Controls
Summary: I got this model recently and they are the first pair of binoculars I've owned. I'm absolutely delighted with them: easy to focus, with a very clear image, and really comfortable to handle. If you are bamboozled by the esoteric terminology of some binocular reviews, and baffled by reviewers who are scathing about binoculars that cost hundreds of pounds; if, like me, all you want is a decent pair that will be good for spotting birds and looking at the night sky, you could...
Summary: I chose these binoculars after trawling the various websites, as I wanted a pair that had quality optics at a reasonable price for general use on holiday and when I am out walking. Unfortunately, when they arrived, I realised that the optics, whilst bright, were just too blurred around the edges and far too prone to some rather annoying internal reflections.
Summary: I opened the box with some trepidation as cost had been a major factor in choosing the binoculars, and these seemed to be good value which wouldn't sacrifice too much quality. Finally decided to go for this porro-prism optical design, with high-refraction BaK4 glass prisms. A good rubber housing affords a comfortable non-slip hold. There's a minimal + 0 - scale on the diopter, which serves as a rough rule-of-thumb, and the diopter lens itself was easy to adjust.
