Great bargain bino

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner from United States, NJ Written on July 13, 2011
This is a great bino for the money. Works great with eyeglasses. Wide field of view allows me to find and track birds and butterflies more easily than with my narrower FOV binos. I really enjoyed using them for the first time this evening watching groups of vultures and a hawk soar in the sky. Twist down eye cups function nicely. Color and finish of these binos appear better in hand than as shown in picture. Not as sleek and light as my 8x42 roof prism binos, but not too heavy or awkward either. Optical quality impressive considering price. No CA that I could detect. Based on this experience, I would try other Alpen products.
Pros: long eye relief, wide FOV, optical quality, low price
Cons: not waterproof...
Would recommend: Yes

There are so many good things to say about the Alpen model 317.The brightness-multi-coating gives a very bright image even on cloudy days-the twist up eye cups-All focusing wheels turn very smoothly just to mention a few. I did not expect to get this much quality for the price.
Cap in Ohio.

Excellent product; not ideal for hiking, etc. due to larger size. However, optics and eye cup system are superb.
Pros: Slide down eye cups; rugged; easy focus; bright
Cons: size and weight...
