I intend to use these for safari and birding. I read multiple reviews and visited many binocular websites to understand the pros and cons of various binoculars. For the price ($50 rebate currently in effect) these are a very good value, and I couldn't find any other binoculars with other ED glass in this price range. They are toward the low end in terms of weight for 8x42 binoculars. They are easy to focus and the eyecups are easy to use with or without glasses. There are other products out there with wider field of view, which is nice, but the combination of price, features, and optics is what brought me to buy these. So far, I'm not disappointed. If I had to nitpick, the lens caps are very cheap feeling and likely to get lost
Pros: High value, high quality, easy to use with glasses
Cons: Flimsy lens caps
