After getting these Nikons, I have not shifted from Leupold or similar/more expensively priced items. Nothing against Leupold but I want the Monarch Scope, & Bino next and I have the Nikon Spotter scope. I am 100% pleased. I looked thru lesser brands and I was shocked at what they were missing in clarity, light transmission and eye relief. I am VERY pleased!
Pros: Everything about these binos is impressive, I am hooked!
Cons: Want the 10 X 42!
