Summary: Anyone looking through mine says "wow" - no color fringing at all; extremely bright; smooth fast focusing; I find them very easy to hold well (I have medium men's hands) and good covering material; and they are reasonably rugged, with objective caps that don't fall off. I wear glasses (-4.25 diopter) and can see the entire field, and the eyecups are a silicon that does not slip around on my glasses.
Pros: Close Focus, Compact, Lightweight, Quality Lenses, Strong Construction
Summary: Bright and brilliant view Great close focus for butterfly viewing I can wear it all day due to its light weight Good solid feel in hand and easy to use eyecups Great companion tool for my nature photography hikes.
Pros: Close Focus, Compact, Quality Lenses, Strong Construction, Works Well With Glasses
Summary: As an avid birder and photographer, I am always aware of the need for my optics to gather the maximum light for accurate viewing of the subject. The Zeiss Victory series 8x32 binoculars fill this requirement for me, as no other binoculars I have ever owned. Although the Swarovski 8X32 El binoculars are a favourite with many birders, the Zeiss are equal and at a lower price, with an excellent warranty. All my friends who look through these binoculars express dismay.
Pros: Close Focus, Compact, Great in dim light, Quality Lenses, Works Well With Glasses
Summary: I work in conservation and use these for survey work and I am very pleased. I got the Simon King Limited Edition Version an absolute bargain for the price! Even my colleagues with Swarvos are blown away by the clarity. They are light weight, well built. Image is very sharp and performance is excellent in poor light.
