Excerpt: These get heavy after a day in the field, but the low-light performance and precise optics make it worthwhile. Like one other reviewer, I do wish they had a mil scale, but the quality of these binoculars, especially in light of the reasonable price, makes them a great value. HIGHLY recommended.
Summary: I bought these because I've had a pair of Steiner 8 x 30 Firebird II binoculars for years and they are easy to use and have been very dependable. Like my Firebird IIs, the 10 x 50 Rallye binoculars were, I thought, reasonably priced for their power and quality and had all of the features that I like about my Firebird II: eye pieces individually adjust for focus, the front lens covers (not shown in all the pictures on line) are attached to the binocular body so they do...
Pros: Steiner quality, waterproof, ease of focus, dust covers
If you want/need high quality binoculars, these are worth investigating!

Summary: I bought these for a close friend's birthday. I own a pair, and he has commented how clear they are. Watched eBay for quite a whle, and was able to buy a set at a great price. Steiner's quality is legendary, and well worth paying extra for.
