    Cons: FoV, CA, edge sharpness, slow focusing.

    Pros: Sharp, lightweight.

    Summary: For the price it's totally OK. Some flaws but very sharp and bright enough. Light for its size.

    Cons: Narrow FOV.

    Pros: Not as good optically as the porro version, which i have also reviewed. But given how good the porro version is optically, well... Very comfortable for the eye.

    Summary: Nice feel in the hand. Good fit and finish. I see it as significantly better than a Nikon Monarch (@11/23/2011), but the FOV is not very wide. A good general use glass for the price.

    Cons: A bit too slow focus, some outer edge distortion & lack of edge sharpness, a little chromatic aberration (more at edges).

    Pros: Quite low weight, bright and sharp enough, seems robust.

    Summary: It's the best binos I've had, but have looked though better, (Swarovski 8,5X44 EL) which is muuuch more expensive! I think they are optically all right and very durable, and for the price, one of the best roofs you can get.
