excellent binoculars for birding with superb light gatheringand close focusI am an avid Birder from Nepal. I did a lot of research online before buying this binocular still wondering if it was worth the price.
I am happy it met all my expectation. I especially like its light body, light gathering, close focus and very smooth focus. I look forward to many years of excellent birding with these binoculars.
If you are wondering which binoculars to buy in mid range pricing, go for these..:-) By UJT, on 24 Mar 2016
Excellent apart from caseThese are excellent binoculars, light and easy to handle, superb lenses and lovely focus movement. My only reservation is that the case will not hold the binoculars while the strap is connected. It is a very tight fit even without the strap and really only intended for storage at home or when not in use. Then you have to work where to store the strap!
RSPB response: Hi Hugo, thanks for your review we are glad you are enjoying the binoculars. Many thanks for letting us know about the case. The case is just meant for storage really like you say, it’s not a “stay on case”, but there should be room for the strap so we will look into this with our supplier. By Hugo, on 30 Jun 2015
Superb binocularsI went to Minesmere with the intention of buying some new binoculars.
As we like to walk and bird watch I wanted something lightweight but didn't want to compromise on magnification. My husband has always said he doesn't want to carry binoculars around with him but he is happy to look through mine.
The chap at Minesmere was really helpful and informative. He didn't try and sell me the most expensive binoculars, which I intended to do. In all honesty the difference between this price of binoculars and the HD ones didn't warrant the extra money.
These are mid priced and I would thoroughly recommend thesme, even my husband was impressed and the next time we visit we will be purchasing a second pair for him. By BirdieGB, on 9 Apr 2015
