Summary: I upgraded from a cheaper pair of binoculars and was amazed at the difference in both ease of use and clarity of the image. I did a fair amount of research before buying, and these binoculars get highly rated. I would agree. Quite bulky, but a real pleasure to use.I would prefer the strap to remain attached to the binoculars when in the case.
Summary: I have used these bins a dozen times now and have grown to like them even more than when I first used them. The ED lenses are excellent and the feel of these optics is great. It took me a couple of uses to get used to the fast focusing wheel which, now I have got used to it, is far better than my old bins. I have no hesitation in recommending these superb binoculars.
Pros: Durable, Excellent value, Great Colour Definition, Superb Clarity
Summary: I did quite a lot of research before deciding to purchase these excellent binoculars.Having used them half a dozen times now on estuary walks, bird watching excursions etc I can honestly say that I am thrilled with them.The image these bins produce is extremely clear with 'spot on' true colour. The ED lenses and optical system is remarkable and these bins offer outstanding value for money.
Pros: Durable, Great Image Quality, Lightweight, Quality Neckstrap
