I ordered this along with a Brunton Lite Tech monocular. I opened the Brunton first and found it hopeless - no real focus at all. So I wasn't expecting much from the Vanguard either and thought I wouldn't find usable optics at this price. The Vanguard proceeded to blow my socks off. The view is very clean and clear and the depth of field is exceptional. It also permits very close focus; I sat on my porch with legs stretched out in front of me and was able to examine a (very tame) wild squirrel at my feet in close detail. It was really lovely because of the depth of field - instead of just seeing a limited plane in focus at a time, a great deal of the squirrel was discernible at each point. I was able to see fine points of his coat or eyes, for instance, in the context of the larger squirrel. I haven't personally experienced that with optics before despite having spent a great deal of time looking through binoculars, and I love it. It does take a bit of twisting of the focus to reach the desired distance, but I think that may have something to do with the unusual depth of field, and it also makes focusing very precise - you don't have to hunt for that one tiny place where the focus is good on what you want to see. Also the twisting is very smooth and controllable, which makes it a pleasure. I think this monocular is a steal. It has me interested in checking out other Vanguard products. I only wish it had lens covers. It does come packaged very nicely, and has a fine little pack cloth case with belt loop, and a microfiber cleaning cloth. For now I'm wrapping the monocular in the cloth and putting it in the case.
