I use my new Nikon 7X35's to watch bird feeder which is fairly close to my house. NOTE: object still must be at least 20 or so feet from your usual viewing spot. Works very well and decently clear.
Pros: Well made. Decent lens quality for price. Good for close up viewing lika @ bird feeder 20' away.
Cons: Not near Swarovaski quality BUT I can afford Nikon.
