    Cons: Not flat-field (but a large sweet spot), not wide-field (due to optical design), not as much contrast as Leica Ultravid 7x42 HD. Somewhat heavier as expected (but this allows a steady view).

    Pros: Excellent behaviour against the light (e. g. reflections of the sun in a pond). Good ergonomics despite the weight. Very robust. Not expensive.

    Summary: One of the last 7x42 binoculars. All in all very good image quality (Leica Ultravid is slightly better, but for 3 times as much money). Ideal for gaining an overview in panning and census tasks in ornithology.
