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. When I had to turn them in I felt naked without them so I went out and bought a set for myself in the civilian world. I use them in conduction with my rifle scopes with a mil-dot reticle for dead on accurate ranging.
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. The focus is also very good with one setting allowing clear viewing from about 50m to infinity. Very handy to use without adjustment. Just pick them up and use them.
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. I would recommend this binocular to anyone wanting a best in class instrument.
