I bought these based on this review http://www.bestbinocularsreviews.com/Vanguard10x42SpiritED-71.htm
and have found them to be everything advertised. This is my 1st pair of high quality binocs and they are clear as a bell and focus quickly. I keep them on the tripod I received as a rebate promo (also a great product) and have seen all sorts of wildlife on my lake. I can even see dragonflies a couple hundred yards away!
Pros: good value, great quality, freebies/promos
Cons: binoc to tripod adapter (received free) is a bit hard to use but works fine
