Excerpt: "It was a tough choice...but they are that good!" I recently visited the Eagle Optics store in Madison to compare several moderately priced glasses that I was considering. I went there fully expecting the Eagle Optics Ranger 8 X 32 to win my heart, and in many ways it did: Wonderfully ergonomic and...
Excerpt: I have been looking for a good pair of bins for birding. I needed something light, I already own some Olympus 8x42 which are Japanese made and really nice. The Olympus are a tad too heavy to carry along with my camera gear.
Summary: I bought these binoculars to replace an old pair of Leica 10x32 Trinovids, and they are excellent - especially for the price. I was finding it a little difficult to keep the image through the 10x Leicas steady enough, but didn't want to go down to 8X for - mostly - birdwatching.
Summary: Better than anticipated. Wider view with glasses than my faithful Leica 10x32. Lighter. Instead of using them as back up as intented, they are now my primary binoculars. Let's see how they last.
Summary: They arrived within 48 hrs of ordering, superb. Although not the most expensive binoculars these are by far the best I have owned. Excellent quality of build and the ergonomics allow ease of use with one hand if required. Being water and fog proof just adds to the spec.
