    Cons: Quite heavy to carry on long hiking trips, some chromatic aberration and slight blurring towards the edges of the FOV.

    Pros: Excellent low light performance and very durable construction.

    Summary: While I would love to give full 5 stars to Docter on all aspects, I am inclined to rate optics quality at 4 stars due to the fact that during bright summer days these have a noticeable tendency for chromatic aberration. If the intended use is during bright daylight I usually carry a Swarovski CL pocket for the optical clarity, however in low light conditions Docter 8x58 is far superior in terms of light gathering power. Based on my experience with Docter 8x58 in conditions where bare eye can only see silhouettes beyond 10 metres (approx. 33 feet), these binoculars allow the user to see up to 30 metres (nearly 100 feet) making it much easier to navigate in low light situations on a hiking trip. In my opinion these would be perfect for any outdoorsman or hunter who is often out in the wild during dusk or dawn.

    Cons: Heavy unit, but then again there is a lot of excellent quality Glass. No case comes with it..(not that it needs it just a complaint)

    Pros: Amazing sharpness and crispness of image. Very bright, especially at dusk/dawn. Built like a tank. Beautiful coatings (perfect color rendition)

    Summary: Overall, if weight is not an issue, this binocular displays an amazingly clear, crisp and bright image that satisfies the most critical eye. I am very sensitive to Chromatic aberrations and after reading the review here on allbinos, I hesitated in my purchase. No after buying this unit, I am absolutely amazed at how well this binocular actually controls CA...it is only noticeable at the edges if you look for it. An exceptional binocular in all respects. Sharpness of image is on par (if not 2-3% better) than my Zeiss FLT*..and that is saying a lot. Depth of field is beautiful, with excellent detail throughout the entire range. As I said before, if one can get used to its weight and overall size, this binocular is an instrument well worthy of its price tag..***** (5 Stars)
