Summary: Bought these for my husband for Christmas. Having done a lot of research into binoculars suitable for horse racing these came up in the top few. I tried the other two mentioned but these were far superior.
Summary: I already had an old pair of Steiner 10x26s, which had given good service for over a decade. Knowing the quality of the optics, I stuck with the brand. I wasn't disappointed. I was 'blown away' by the latest version of the binocular, which are even better than my original pair.
Summary: I needed a pair of lightweight compact binoculars to use when competing or training in archery. These more than fitted my requirements. Sharp and bright image, ease of use, robustness! Excellent product by Steiner!
Summary: Missus well happy.. and I am impressed at quality.. magnification and sharpness. Case a bit bulky but not enough of a reason to knock a star off... buy these and find another case that suits you if necessary.
Summary: Having been used to cheap binoculars, it is a pleasure to use these. Very clear picture, even in low light levels, comfortable to hold, fits the eyes well, and quick to focus - worth the extra money.
