4.0 out of 5 stars AMAZING VALUE AT THIS PRICE., 30 Jun. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Nikon Sportstar EX 10x25 DCF Binoculars (London 2012 Olympics Edition) (Electronics)
Bought these simply because the same binox WITHOUT the london olympics logo went for around £90- £110 pounds so for these at under £40-00 they were a bargain. Must have been a job lot that nobody now wants because of the london olympics logo.

At this price it's a no- brainer folks. For full price they would are certainly good enough. Weight is fine, another reviewer thought they were heavy but not for me, they're very compact and easily portable.

Optics are good, slight amount of chromatic aberration (that's a slight colour fringing around objects when looking through the binox, usually shows as a purple or green aura around things on a bright day. That kind of thing), but it's very slight and often found with most optics in this kind of price range. Images are sharp enough for continued use, bright, and it's easy to focus and adjust these to suit yourself. It's worth buying a "brand name" pair of binoculars as the quality control is better than some of the other cheaper brands. I've seen cheaper binoculars which are "cross - eyed", in other words the two tubes are misaligned preventing them from being barely useful! You won't get that with Nikon. They'll last forever, they'll probably never fog up and the images you see through them will be clear enough. Plus you probably won't get a headache after looking through them for any longer length of time. This you often get with cheaper optics!

For the price you can't miss these. Seriously. Nikon Sportstars for 40 quid?! They're not going to last long at this price! PS- I'm a pro photographer so I'm a bit geeky about optics and so on, these are fine for the price. I think they're the best you can get for under £100-00. I had more to spend but bought these because they were such a crazy bargain. Glad I did!
