These are bright. They compare favorably to Nikon 10.5x45 Monarch X. Ok they are not quite as sharp but not really far off. I was birding toward Dusk and using a pair of Cabelas Alaskan Guide binos. The trees were backlite which made viewing difficult. The Alaskan Guides had terrible glare. Luckily I brought the Nikons along. When I switched the glare was very well controlled. I could see the color of a scarlet tanager well against a dark tree that was brightly back lite. It was getting dark when I was driving out of the park and spotted an owl aboyt 75 ft away in a tree. I pulled over and the Nikons clearly separated the grey and brown in the owl from the green in the tree with only minutes of daylight left. The Alaskan Guides gave me a dark image in which I could not differentiate the owl from the tree. Through 8.5 x 56 I had a great view of the owl for 10 more minutes until it was dark. Are they as good as my Swarovski EL's or my Nikon Premeirs? No the Alphas win easily in resolution ...

Bought the binoculars for deer hunting, especially for very low light conditions. Even though they are very clear under most conditions, they didn't quite meet my expecations at low light - especially being 56mm. Otherwise, they are fine binoculars in this price range for most any user

Would recommend:  yes

My binoculars are used for spotting aircraft from a distance of about 1500 feet to 5 miles. At age 69, I have good distance vision and use binoculars without wearing my vision corrective glasses. The Nikon 8.5x56 Monarch Binoculars are the best, by far, of the 6 binoculars I use for this purpose. The depth of field, from the 56mm objective lenses, makes it possible to view aircraft at changing distances without changing the focus or the eyepiece diopter adjustment. The viewing emage is large and bright. The 8.5 power is a good compromise between magnification and hold ability. This binocular is large and heavy, but both are worth the effort needed for the results.
