    Excellent
    These are excellent value for money. The build quality is superb, the image is clear, bright and sharp and they have the feel of a real quality product. Highly recommended!

    Brilliant Binoculars
    Visisted the local estuary over the weekend and tried these binoculars out, they are very good indeed. Setting them up was really easy using the instructions that accompany them. Images were pin sharp and they are quite lightweight, the extra wide strap helps. I walked about four miles and they weren't a burden to carry at all.
    If you are contemplating purchasing a pair of binoculars I would highly recommend these.

    Just what I've been looking for!
    I have finally found my next set of perfect bins! I apparently have a small face, so once my trusty old set gave up, have since found binocular buying hard work. So many models have eye pieces that are just too wide apart to make a good view. This pair, however, are perfect! I don't even have to open them out to use them and I get a beautifully crisp, clear image with no double vision. Can't wait to get out and about and see what's going on around me again!

    Excellent performance and value
    The best pair of binoculars are the ones that get used regularly (regardless of price). The Avocets have got me back out here in the countryside and watching birds. Thoroughly recommended.

    Very good binoculars
    Purchased these at RSPB Dart's Farm. Tried 8 x 42 and 10 x 42. The 8 X 42 gave very good light gathering and very steady to hold still. 10 X 42 were difficult to hold still. Would recommend the 8 X 42.

    Poor
    Bought for the kitchen table, not for serious or sustained watching. Disappointed by the optics which are not sharp. Also the image focus and geometry is not uniform, left to right across the field of view. The right eye correction is very stiff. I would have expected more for £135 and would price it closer to £50. Will be contacting RSPB Optics.

    RSPB response: Thank you for your review, from your comments it does sound like you have a faulty pair and we would suggest contacting customer services to arrange a replacement.

    Fabulous binoculars
    These binoculars are brilliant. They're light weight and comfortable to use. Being a specs wearer the screw down eyepieces are perfect.

    Excellent binoculars at nice price
    I recently visited Bempton Cliffs and I was in the market for some new binoculars so I looked at the range of binoculars.

    I tried the mid-range binoculars and these and as far as I could see the Avocets are as clear and as bright as the more expensive binoculars so I bought these.

    I have used them a few times since I bought them and they are superb and make me smile not just because they are good but also they weren't that expensive in comparison to some binoculars.
