    Cons: Very susceptible to stray light. Produces strong flaring and veiling glare at only slightly unfavourable light conditions.

    Pros: Light, compact, wide field of view, well built.

    Summary: On paper these are very nice binoculars, but I found them unusable due to the poor stray light performance. Therefore I returned them to the seller after less than 2 weeks of testing. BTW: I also owned the Kowa BD42-8XD, which did not suffer from this issue and are well worth their asking price.

    Cons: they seem to have CA (yellowish tint) when observing very bright objects. Annoying in conditions, where background is bright (sky). Gives a misleading picture of the object.

    Pros: relatively lightweight well built, smooth focus excellent for glasses wearers (16mm eye distance) large angle of observation, but not sharp to the corners.

    Summary: well built, smooth focus, good value for money, should have gone for 10x32 though.
