    I’ve never owned a pair of binoculars before. I wanted something light that I could keep in the car for spontaneous viewing and that I could use for stargazing when I don’t feel like lugging out all my telescope gear. I also wanted something high quality that I could use for years to come. These work well for that.

    The build quality is excellent.

    The eye relief is good – I use these with my glasses on and the eye cups dialed in. It makes it easy to hand the binoculars to my non-visually challenged friends so they can look at what I’m pointing out… I just have to remind them to twist the eye cups out real fast.

    The optical quality is excellent. I’m not going to pretend to be an expert here. To me, things look great with some minor exceptions. First off, for the most part, if I’m looking at something terrestrial, like my friend’s dog, the quality is stunning. It’s like I’m staring at a high definition crisp image of the dog (who’s the good girl? Daisy’s the good girl!). If I’m looking at something terrestrial like a wall that’s not too far off, and the sun is bright, and I’m at the correct angle, there is some chromatic aberration (a slight purple fringing). The solution is pretty easy – just shift your angle a tiny bit and it’s gone. I did read up a bit on this phenomenon and it appears to be expected unless you’re willing to spend 2x+ $ or you’re willing to settle for heavier binoculars.

    For astronomy, they’re great! Again, keep in mind that I wanted portable, so weight is a factor. Some of the astronomy binoculars out there are as heavy as a small apochromatic refractor telescope. A 42mm aperture resulted in the right balance between light gathering and weight for my purposes. There’s some debate around preferences for 8×42 vs 10×42. I initially regretted getting the 10×42 because it is difficult to hold these steady enough that the stars aren’t shaking all over the place. A cheap Amazon Basic’s monopod with a third-party adapter fixed that problem for cheap.

    For me, mission accomplished. I got high quality binoculars that are light, a pleasure to look through, durable, and likely to be near by when I’m on the move so I can use them when I need them. Like a camera, the best binoculars you have are the ones you have on you.

    excellent views crisp and sharp.
    i use these for wildlife and occasional astronomy. For a 42mm lens they are very comfortable and an extremely pleasant view. Been using for 2 years and holding up extremely well.

    Great, clear, easy to use binoculars. Very balanced which makes them easy to focus and hold.

    I got the 8×30 for my wife for birding. I am something of an optics geek, but I was really impressed with these. Love the size and weight. Surprisingly generous eye relief given the specs. Wide field of view. Excellent close focus. Bright and sharp with excellent detail and color. Not quite a match for the optics of my 6x as expensive Swarovski’s but the difference is small. Swarovski’s have a more precise focus and more depth of field, but the differences are small for the price. Don’t buy the hype that a bigger, more expensive 42 mm binocular is brighter. That is only true if you use them in the dark when your pupils are dilated. In normal daylight use these have the same brightness and are so much easier to use because of how light weight they are. Highly recommended.

    Bought the 10×30 which were poor stability, but this one was great

    Got these after we had visited Costa Rica and found our previous portable binoculars … lacking.

    Took these with us on a recent trip and met someone who had Lieca 8×32 binoculars. I compared them in a dark forest setting and would be hard-pressed to tell the difference in the optics. These Nikons are awesome!

    + optics are phenomenal: clear, crisp, and bright!
    + Very easy to use – adjusting diopter and lens separation made it easy for my wife and I to share these
    + small size & low weight makes them easy to pack and carry
    + lens covers (front and rear) can all be attached so won’t get lost
    + includes soft case that can be folded down to save space when using binoculars

    None that I can think of.

    Highly recommended!

    Love the view from these binoculars, the details are spectacular. The only concern I have is that I’m uncomfortable with the separation of the lenses for me to get a “full” view through the lenses. If the lenses are not separated to the correct distance the user does not get a “full” view through the eyepieces – this is a custom adjustment that is different for everyone. In my case I have to fully separate the lenses to get the fullest view through the eyepieces – and I am fully adjusted to the stops on the binoculars. I’m not that large of a fellow, so, wonder how well the binoculars do for folks that have eyes that are spaced further apart than mine.

    I use these for birding, and they are outstanding for this purpose. Small and light enough to carry easily in the field, great optical clarity, a wide field of view, and a good, bright image in low light conditions. I LOVE the locking diopter adjustment (although I recognize this is only a helpful feature for single-user binocs). The focus wheel and eye separation adjustment are just a little on the stiff side, which I like; but this is very much a matter of personal preference, and some people will prefer less resistance in these adjustments. I find these glasses very comfortable in the hand, with a nice “grippy” texture to the armor coating. Altogether, a really superior pair of mid-range binoculars in my opinion. They are one of the more expensive choices in their class, but worth it for the performance and features they offer.

    Excellent binoculars. These are the best mid priced binoculars available.

    These are amazing. I thought they would be much bigger after reading all the reviews that recommended 8X over 10X and 30 over 42 because of size and weight. But these are quite compact and light considering they are 10X42, and not that much bigger or heavier than most of the high end 8X30 binoculars on the market. Check the specs of the others before you buy and you will see size and weight are not that bad when you compare side by side. And way better than my old binocular. I would recommend over the 8X30 unless you are wanting to take them to the opera or put them in your pocket. Bright, clear and crisp. I think quite possibly among the best out there. The only issue is the neck strap is a pain to attach, but I purchased some quick release clasps (Small Rig rapid link connectors) so I can attach or detach the strap easily. Don’t hesitate. These are not your Dad’s binoculars.
