I was very impressed with this monocular when I first tried it (see previous review). However I subsequently found that I was disappointed with it when I tried it on objects further away. Only about 1/2 of the diameter of the viewing field is in focus. The rest - outer edges - is blurry. For some reason this is much less obvious to me when I use it at distances no further than 15-20 feet. But it is very limiting and unpleasant when looking at more distant objects. You have to have what you want to see in the very center of the field. It does still get good focus there. For the price I think it is probably pretty good but I think I need something more versatile, though I'm tempted to keep it just so I can look at wildlife near my kitchen and porch (many birds, squirrels, so forth). I'm sorry I let my original enthusiasm have full rein in the original review before using the monocular under different conditions. Thank you.

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 ...

I really like this small monocular. I simply wasn't able to spend more but I was not disappointed. It's easy to bring along hiking and one can get closer views of insects and stuff than a regular binocular. If I need to have higher power binocs with me then this one will not be a nuisance to bring along. The focusing mechanism is neither sloppy nor too stiff. The clarity is good. This one has a fold down eye cup and the eye relief is adequate for people like me who wear glasses. On the down side it takes some getting used to the focusing style of this though. The tube gets longer as you need to focus to a closer object and it takes more time than a typical fast focus binocular. I've gotten used to it though. I think the 6X is enough, it shows a lot of detail and I think it makes aiming at a close object easier than a higher power one would. On a side note I'm even impressed with the box it came in-it's strong fancy cardboard with a magnet inside the cover to keep it closed. Not ...
