Not as good as I hoped...

Al Downie, Amazon

  • Summary: I confess I was seduced by the heavily discounted price and the great reviews, but in fact the quality of these Steiners isn't very good at all, and if I was buying again I'd stick to equivalent-priced Nikon or Pentax binoculars. I wanted something cheap, simple and robust for my 3yr old son to call his own, and I was happy to accept a compromise in terms of image quality, but I thought they'd be better than this.

Do not buy this binocular

Sveto, Amazon

  • Summary: I bought a Steiner Predator Extreme 8x22 Binocular from amazon.co.uk. The reason to choose this binocular is that I wanted a small and reliable binocular from a brand company like Steiner. I expected to be satisfied from the quality of German made optics. What did I find when I received the binocular ? Pros - The mechanics is good, the feeling is for a rugged and mechanically well made binocular, it has a good case.

Awesome

  • Summary: If you're like me there will be many things in your life that you have bought only to feel that slight tinge of disappointment that you thought it would be a bit better. At last, I've met satisfaction. I'd forgotten what it felt like. I have bought 3 sets of binoculars in the last 5 years and these are amazingly better than anything I've looked through so far. Not marginally, I mean "in your face" obvious. So what's different?

Good for its size

  • Summary: Image is very good for such a small pair of binos. I used to have a Steiner 10x32 which was optically better, but I never brought it with me as I thought they were too big. This 8x22 has a perfect pocketable size and weight is not an issue. Good build quality.
