This review is from: Canon 18 x 50 Image Stabilising All Weather Binoculars (Electronics)
I bought these for wildlife viewing. The magnification is incredible and the image stabilization very good. I did a bit of research before buying them and they looked to be the best image stabilized binoculars available. If you have this level of magnification and a tripod is not an option then image stabilization is essential. Yes they are expensive but there are good deals available- Amazon was best when I bought mine. The weight is no different from the 15x50 so if you can, it's worth going for the bigger magnification. I put standard camera lens filters on the lenses to protect them.
