I have known for awhile it was time to spring for a good set of bins for hunting and wildlife watching. After much reading of reviews; comparing technical evaluations and talking with friends, I settled on these magnificent bins. Not to heavy, super bright, crystal clear and ultra sharp best describes these binoculars. HoweverSteiner does use their Click-loc strap system which makes buying the bundled OPMOD sling system USELESS. Also, I do not have great confidence that time and use will not result in one of there proprietary strap attachment devices won't end up dropping my $900.00 binoculars into a pile of rocks. BTW, the only sling system that will work with these bins is Steiners own $45.00 sling/shoulder harness system. It's good, but a bit pricey and I still don't care for the Click-Lok system.
Pros: Amazingly sharp and bright.
Cons: Click-loc strap system. Lens caps and eyepiece cover.
