    Cons: Lack of multi-coatings make it flare easily and lowering of contrast with bright backgrounds. Bulkier and heavier than roof prism varieties.

    Pros: Good sharpness, field of view and reasonable eye relief. Optically very good. Comfortable.

    Summary: These deserve a 8 out of 5 for value for money. I bought these for myself to upgrade the brightness of my Lietz 8x20 binos (old eyes) and since then handed them to my young niece as a good starter for birdwatching and stargazing. I was flabbergasted when I first used them. These are seriously useful binos regardless of price. These make good first binos and the benchmark for any upgrades.

    Cons: The neck-strap being too narrow, is quite uncomfortable.

    Pros: Bright image with natural colour rendition. Edge-sharpness is excellent. Wide field-of-view

    Summary: Never mind the grade of glass, coatings, expert reviews, etc. I can assure that the only unbelievable thing about this binocular, is it's price. Start birding with this and go for upgrades, keeping this one's performance as your benchmark.

    Cons: These are BK 7 prisms, not BAK 4. Strap too narrow. Also the coatings are single ones, not multi coated.

    Pros: Excellent shape for holding. Adjustments of focus and inter pupillary distance is not too stiff, not too loose, is just correct. The image is very good.

    Summary: Excellent value. Perhaps, at this price one cannot expect Bak 4 prisms and full multicoating.

    Cons: Would have liked a wider neck strap.

    Pros: Bright clear image, with Bak-4 prisms. Good close focus, nice firm grip with rubber coating, value for money. 25yr. Guarantee.

    Summary: You won't go far wrong with these quality binoculars. Perfect for birdwatching, sports and indoor activities. Bright clear image with good focus that gives a clear and detailed view. Wide field of view, and a good close focus.
