A Test of Time......

Summary: First of all if your looking for a compact binocular then I would give this 5 Stars and I would recommend this. I only gave 4 Stars because overall if you want a binocular with a wider field of vision then you may need a larger one (x50+). But as for this binocular: I personally wanted a good compact that I can use for interior forest/close focus subjects. This one was an Excellent Choice. I'm totally satisfied with this one.
Steiner 10 x 26 Predator Binoculars- Small package, Large Reward!
16 April 2011
Summary: The Steiner Predator 10 x 26 binos are good to go. They are light weight and crystal clear. I have replaced my larger 8 x 30 Steiner Predators with this model due to size and weight. The only reason I gave them a 4 out of 5 stars is that they only have a rain guard on the ocular eye pieces and nothing for the objective lens like the 8 x 30 model. Overall a great deal for the price!
Summary: This binocular has the best power to size ratio. The size is very handy and useable in almost all circumstances. The price was very attrective for this quality glass and workmanship and a metal frame which is sign of quality all by itself. I only find two objections; This hoakie rain-cover should be replaced with a bonafied ocular and objective rubber lens covers.
Excellent product, good guarantee, well worth the money

Summary: I searched for a small pair of binoculars to use whilst hill walking. These fit the bill entirely. Easy to carry and to use. Caps for the lens would be useful but otherwise excellent. The case supplied is good quality but does not have a strap rather it has a belt loop.
Summary: These are great binoculars - very good specification and easy to use but at the same time they fit into your pocket and are ideal to carry around. The casing feels very robust and they are waterproof so they will stand up to some rugged treatment. I find them easy to focus and they have good 10 times magnification - so they are ideal for general use and don't cost a fortune. I wear spectacles and you just need to turn down the rubber eyecups to use them.
Summary: I have just returned from a safari where I used these bins all the time. I've always found binoculars tricky to use in the past, but quickly got used to these, possibly because they are lightweight and easy to hold still for focussing. My daughter and son-in-law also used the same make and got on well with them. I was using them whilst wearing prescription sunglasses, but was still able to focus easily and get a clear picture.
Summary: Do not use binoculars much but these seem to be nice light binoculars with good clarity. I can use them with my bifocal glasses without a problem. Downsides: - can be a little difficult to keep them steady. - case is good, but no separate lens caps if you want to protect them without having to put them back in the case each time.
Summary: Excellent light weight pair of binoculars - bought for wild life viewing in Zambia. Good clear image with good field of view. Not as good light intensity as a £700 pair of Carl Zeiss larger size binoculars being used by a fellow traveller, but for the price you get high quality, convenient size and optics that give an excellent all round general performance
Summary: der auf Ausflügen und Wanderungen mal durchschaut. Mir gefällt das Glas. Klares Bild, gute Farben, leicht zu bedienen. Hatten vorher ein anders, teureres, das aber immer so dunkle Riesenflecken beim Durchschauen (ja, die Deckel waren ab) gezeigt hat, wenn man nicht eine ganz bestimmte Entfernung und den genauen Augenabstand eingestellt hatte. Meine Frau hatte noch mehr Schwierigkeiten. Das Steiner ist viel leichter zu handhaben, das haben wir behalten.
