Excerpt: We bought 2 pairs of the DCF ED 8x43 after considerable searching and trials of other units. The performance of the these is everything we expected, a substantial improvement over our old units.
Excerpt: Upgraded to these from my 8.5 x 44 Swift Audubon roofs. I love the view through these binoculars! The colors and brightness are amazing. Even though they are only 8X, I am able to discern color markings on waterfowl at great distance. Also, little drab birds in a shady bush really stand out. Only two minor complaints: one,the eye piece covers are no good, so I replaced with one made by Vortex.
