Good performance

I tried a few sets of Binoculars on a visit to the Vane Farm shop. After scouring reviews I'd half settled on these as price vs performance compromise, As a spectacle wearer I found they gave a good bright image with colours well rendered. They weren't quite as good on contrast as the HD pairs but not to the extent that I'd pay the extra, On distant contrasty horizons you may see some red colour fringing along the skyline. This is not a problem at shorter distances. The binos sit well in the hand with and the focus wheel seems just to have the right gearing easily to enable precise focus. The lens cups are comfortable and effective and can be fully retracted for spectacle users. The strap is a good length and is well padded. By BigEars, on 20 Apr 2017

excellent binoculars for birding with superb light gatheringand close focus

I 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 case

These 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
