Summary: I bought a pair as this was the same issued set I had in the USMC as a forward observer in F/Rec 1/5 They are simply the best glass eyes you are going to find. My issued set took a severe beating in the field and kept going.
Summary: Steiner is the finest binocular made. I am amazed that it is always in focus no matter what distance that you are looking. The Steiner quality is excellent and the price is very good. I highly recommend their binoculars. This is my 3rd pair that I have owned.
Summary: Turns out that these binos were M22's and were military issue at one time. Very clear view and they have the laser filters. Steiners are awesome binos and even though they are large they are every easy to use and easy on the eyes after long viewing.
Summary: I got these on ebay to use sailing and on the initial examination I was suprised at the quality of the image even compared to my good Pentax 12x50. The extra light grathering of the 7x50 compered to the 7x30 is great for sailing when viewing in low light.
Summary: This binocular is well balanced yet robust in design. It provides excellent image brightness in low light situations and extremely sharp focus. The digital flux gate compass is very responsive and accurate. It's unfortunate that this model is no longer available from Steiner.
Summary: I bought these binoculars after I used a similar pair while Moose hunting in Saskatchewan, Canada. I really like the clarity of the optics and the ruggedness of the design. They are not light by any means but the crystal clear view makes up for any problems with the weight.
