    Cons: Bag and strap.

    Pros: Terrific image resolution once I had tuned them myself, now on par with my 10x50 ELs (see opinion I left March 2019 10x50 ELs v 8x32 DCF EDs). Very pointable; light 750 grams with harness; brilliant tough rubber armour unlike the delicate fussy armour of my ELs. Staggering value for money.

    Summary: Bought December 2017, and they were never brilliant in image resolution, just couldn\'t get them sharp, focus wheel was also horribly stiff. Remedy: took off the focus wheel make sure you remove metal E-clip first or you will ruin plastic thread! I then with screw driver \'tuned\' both barrels and lightly oiled metal rods. The image quality is now on par with my ELs, and it focuses with the tip of my little finger. So obviously there QC is not up to Swarovski\'s, but if you are careful you can end up with a almost alpha at quarter the cost.

    Cons: The eyepiece rain cover was replaced with a neater Hawke type.

    Pros: Excellent build quality. Compact and light in weight. Bright, sharp, colourful image, with low distortion and CA. Light & accurate focussing. Solid feel and effortless 7.5 degrees field of view.

    Summary: A near perfect combination of features in a small package. Especially good value, being out of production.
