if your budget is under £400 these are the ones to buy By jimmac, on 8 Nov 2015
Love these binocularsI always buy from RSPB because they absolutely need supporting. Without them there won't be anything to look at with what ever pair of binoculars you choose.
I've had Puffins, Avocets and now these and I'm really excited about them.
The previous pairs were great but these are amazing!
The image is a little larger than my 8x42 which really helps and the extra movement isn't an issue for me. Any extra movement that there is is offset by their light weight (less that Puffins).. The image is really bright and clear and are perfect for me. The 2.5 m close focusing is a real bonus too.
The ten year guarantee gives piece of mind too so all in all you can forget about binoculars and concentrate on the wild life! By Birdman, on 22 Jul 2014
Excellent valueWhilst these binoculars make no claim to be high definition, they are very good binoculars. I find them to be bright and sharp, and to retain good vision when light levels are low. They are lightweight and feel robust. They are definitely worth considering if you'd rather not spend a fortune on high definition binoculars but are looking for something better than the majority of binoculars on the market.
My only gripe - the eye piece surrounds do not click into place when fully extended, which can sometimes lead to them un-extending during use. It's also worth noting that a friend was unable to use them as they did not extend wide enough to fit the distance between his eyes. However, said friend has had the same issue with a number of other popular brand binoculars.
Overall, these are excellent value, thanks. By Phil Golder, on 9 Aug 2012
