    Cons: --Optical quality is good, but nothing special. --The eye cups come "off track" every now and then; easy to fix, but annoying. --Low light conditions are difficult.

    Pros: --Solid build; they feel good in the hands. --A nice size; compact, but not small. --Good performance for the price. --Vortex warranty is the best. --Comes with good lens covers and a nice carrying case.

    Summary: Overall, I'm pleased with these. They won't be my go-to binos for birding, but they're great to have on hand or for traveling. For the price, I think they're hard to beat. I would definitely recommend these, but not as someone's primary set.

    Cons: Too much CA Small sweet-spot Substantial field curvature

    Pros: Small size, light weight Quality construction Large field of view Very good close focus (though not as close as specified)

    Summary: A compact easy-to-carry and easy-to-pack "take anywhere" binocular. There are a lot of things to like about them: their compact size, light weight, good handling, centre sharpness, wide field of view, good colour+contrast and extra-close focus performance are all quite attractive. (Note, though, that while impressive they don't focus nearly as closely as the stated 73 centimeters. I'm nearsighted, but measured closest focus as 108cm without glasses and 127 with.) There are a couple of things that aren't so great: the small sweet-spot and only so-so control of chromatic aberration (colour fringing) are two. Strong field curvature is probably their worst optical "sin" - but the consequent effect (in conjunction with other aberrations) on the portion of veiw that's out of focus is something that probably disturbs me more than it might other people. Others might not even notice it! Or, if they do, they might not really care. It does bug me, though.
