    Cons: Heavier than most, but this also has its merits; I find it easier to hold steady than lighter models.

    Pros: Good FOV, distortion v v low even at the edges. Good CA control, same with flaring. Extraordinary clarity/resolution whatever you wish to call it. Is there another contender at this price using anything like Hoya FDC100 ED glass? Bag and strap good quality ,objective covers stay put and good quality rubber.Read the full review, transmission lower but everything else challenges Alpha-level glass. 10 x 42 easily found brand spanking for £230!,

    Summary: Optically excellent, no trade off on quality, armour is tight and well finished as are hinges. Absolute bargain.

    Cons: A tad heavy but no worse than my Swarovski SL 10 x 42 WB. Focusing not as smooth as my Nikon 8x32 HG but satisfactory

    Pros: Truth is these binoculars are spectacular and clearly a top alpha binocular comparable or better than my Swarovski, Leica, Zeiss, Nikon HG and other glass in terms of the view presented. The price is achieved by having them assembled in China which shows only in one important regard: focusing is a bit spongy and stiff, but you don\'t have to do much of it because stop to stop takes so little turning. It is no Nikon HG in this regard, but neither are the Swarovski. You get used to it. The view is brilliant, contrasty, very sharp, wide angle and sharp edge to edge -- hard to beat. Indeed, dazzling and the price is a real delight as well.

    Summary: A true alpha binocular at a low price

    Price: R5600
    User profile: Semipro

    Cons: Heavy, slight chromatic aberration in center field, too small carry bag (fits too tight and awkward carry strap arrangement).

    Pros: Clarity, low distortion, very big sweet spot, flat field, good FOV, slight yellow cast good for reducing blue light, close focus less than 2 meters, best in class eye relief, locking diopter adjustment. Bright viewing in normal daylight hours and good in dusk and dawn conditions in spite of lower transmission ratio as per Allbinos test. Very comfortable neck strap is a plus point.

    Summary: Massive value for money binos. Compared to Nikon Monarchs, Steiner, Kowa, Bushnells, low range Zeiss and Lynx. Should be market leader in its price range and likely to be as good as those that cost twice as much.
