    Cons: Wide FOV produces noticable barrel distortion especially at 8x42, but 10x42 also has some rolling ball effect. During twilight it tends to produce some flare when looking towards the lighter horizon but not serious.

    Pros: Tack sharp, huge field of view, well corrected chromatic aberration, very good luminosity, contrast and brillance. No flare during daytime. It sees in the dark well from half-moon. Unbelievably light and small binos (8x and 10x looks exactly the same) with very good image quality and noticeably good build quality.

    Summary: Well worth the price. If you can ingnore some distortion and some flare during a couple of twilight minutes, then these binos (both the 8x and the 10x) are real no-brainers!
