Really happy with them but ............I'm really happy with these binoculars so much clearer than my current ones and can see better on duller days.
I have only had them 15 months and one of the eyecups fell off and was told by customer services it can take 4 weeks to repair. Not acceptable. Won't see much long distance nature for a month then By Matt Sav, on 21 Oct 2015
Excellent step up from a basic binocularsBought these today after taking some visits to decide which pair to go for. I'm glad I spent a little bit more on this model than some of the slightly cheaper range the RSPB offer. The image is much brighter in most conditions so far encountered and so it is much easier to see what you are looking at.
The 8.5 offers a closer magnification when stepping down from 10xmagnification budget binocs I already have. In fact I did not miss the slightly less magnification at all.
The build looks solid and the short strap once you get used to it actually stops them swinging around on your chest as you walk.
All in all very satisfied with them. By Mark, on 5 Apr 2015
great so far!!!!We bought two pairs from the rspb shop in bath, the staff are brilliant and really helpful. we are both well impressed with the binoculars so far the picture is really clear and sharp and seem to have an excellent close focus. Comes with a hard case and a fabric bag so they are well secure in transport. also after wearing them for a few hours the strap is still really comfortable around your neck. so far they seem well worth the money. also come with a 10 year guarantee so hopefully these will last us a long time. also thank you to the staff at bath for directing us to the nesting peregrines.
