Don't make the cut

by Legacy Reviewer, Written on January 26, 2012
While the field of view is exceptional in a reverse porro these are the most uncomfortable and difficult compacts I've ever used. To get the full view you have to push your face into these and the focuser is pushed painfully against your forehead. To focus you have to pull your face away to avoid getting pinched by turning the focuser. Terrible. While the optics are acceptable they are not as clear as my pentax 8x21 at a comparable price and are not nearly as bright. I cannot recommend these binoculars to anyone at any price.
Pros: nice wide FOV
Cons: dark, very difficult to handle, ...
Would recommend: Yes
