    Cons: Fragile eye-cups, very low CA; includes generic accessories

    Pros: Excellent sharpness to 90%, stippled focus wheel is smooth, consistent; really great reflection suppression, neutral color rendition, overall excellent value

    Summary: For the money, this is an incredible buy. Made in Japan quality really shines here. Dropped binocular about 2 FT to carpeted floor with eye-cups fully extended. Right eye-cup was dented and knocked out of alignment. It's made of a soft metal. Was able to partially repair back into shape but doesn't turn smoothly as before. Disappointing material quality.

    Cons: None.

    Pros: Very nice binocular for the price. Very sharp to the end and works godd as an spotting binocular for hunting. Not as good as Zeiss and Swaro, but they cost four times as much.

    Summary: Best buy under 600 euro I think! Very happy owner!

    Cons: In the review it is stated that almost the entire field of view (96%) is free from edge blur. I can assure you that this is not true, at least for my Vortex Viper HD 10x42. The blur starts at approx. 60%. Futher out the stars (astronomical use) are not pinpoint like any more. At 80% they are disorted into stripes. Further more there is some dust at one of the prisms.

    Pros: Built quality and weight is good. Looks nice.

    Summary: Nice binocular, but I expected a little bit more after reading the review and spending 600EUR.
