    Cons: Cheap-feeling construction with misaligned plastic trim. Strong odor of plastic that hasn\'t diminished over time (possibly from the case). Single fold and fancy molded case makes it less compact than it might be, and oddly fussy to fit the binocular inside with the strap; no lens caps.

    Pros: Very clear, bright, and relatively wide optics with little chromatic aberration and modest flare. The asymmetrical fold is a little more convenient than the dual fold of other compact models. The large ocular lenses work well with my glasses.

    Summary: These are neither fish nor fowl--not as compact as truly compact binoculars, and not as capable as larger binoculars. I really want to like them because of the optics, but Zeiss needs to improve the construction and accessories. I far prefer the Leica 8x20 Ultravid because the whole package is more compact and better thought-out.

    Cons: If you don\'t wear glasses, rubber eye cups may help with stray light and eye positioning (which needs to be quite precise with the smaller exit pupils of any travel binocular). Diopter adjustment looks cheap and weak and can get moved if you pull it out of pocket or bag carelessly. Case not very good and no objective or eyepiece covers.

    Pros: Optically excellent, in the same league as \'alpha\' binoculars in my opinion. Essentially no CA or other aberrations and with an image that is remarkably sharp, bright and wide-field for such a small device, and with neutral colour and good contrast. Can be used into surprisingly low light situations and retain image detail. I far prefer the asymmetric single hinge to double hinges on small binocs. Feels well made and with a quality focus wheel action (shame about the diopter adjustment).

    Summary: Highly recommended. I believe this is currently the best 8x25 that you can buy at any price, and it\'s not really that expensive. I only use an 8x42 if I want performance in very low light or relaxed eye positioning for extended viewing session.

    Cons: 沒有物鏡與目鏡蓋子。裝上帶子就很難裝入袋子。適合大手或左手使用。目鏡罩丈光線進入眼中。No objective and eyepiece covers. It\'s hard to fit into the bag with the strap on. Suitable for large or left-handed use. The eyepiece covers allow light to enter the eye.

    Pros: 色彩準確。目鏡大,出瞳距離長,視野寬廣、明亮,適合帶眼鏡使用。Colors are accurate. Large eyepiece, long exit pupil distance, wide and bright field of view, suitable for use with glasses.

    Summary: 物超所值。Excellent value.

    Cons: Really nothing. But if you Ask I would prefer the wheel of the diopter would have been smaller. It is easy to adjust it by accident when you pull it out from your pocket. Sometimes I wish it was even smaller so it fit my shirt bredast pocket. But I have my Trinovid 8x20 for that (king of compacts).

    Pros: Love the asymetric bridge - it makes my indexfinger hits the focus wheel spot on. Large diameter of ocular lenses (around 18 mm) makes it very easy to align. Very sharp, light and bright. Large FOW (7.4) for a pocket. Hardly use my 8x32 any more.

    Summary: Top score in every aspect! But the price is not top score. You can get a cheaper bino with pretty much the same crisp view (e.g. Kamakura MR3 8x21).
