I bought these direct from Carmarthen Camera Centre rather than via their outlet on Amazon. They arrived promptly. The current offer also meant I received twenty pounds cashback.
They have a very solid feel to them, and are open bridge, so are easy to hold. They replaced an old pair of Zeiss Jena Jenoptem 8x30, which were particularly light, but I didn't notice the extra weight, as the strap is wide and distributes the weight of 730g well. Plus, the case is featherweight light, unlike the leather Zeiss one. They are easy to hold steady for a 10x pair, so are good for hand-held birdwatching, though there is a tripod attachment point if needed. This needs an L-shaped adapter. They are rubber armoured, and the eyecups are also rubber coated. They are waterproof, being nitrogen filled.
Adjusting the diopter setting is easy, and there is a convenient lock: you pull the eyecups out, adjust, then push back. Having tried this, and wishing to try these on a sunny day at Bempton cliffs, sharing them with my wife, I decided to retract the eyecups and use them with glasses on, an impossible feat with my previous Zeiss's. The exit pupil was just adequate for both of us. We could see a good field of view without removing our glasses. (Eye relief is 16.5mm, in case you are interested. If this is not enough, you could go for the 8x version.) The view was bright and clear and they were easy to focus, the focus being fast and accurate. The bridge is reassuringly stiff, too, to adjust for inter-pupillary distance.
The specs are impressive: ED (extra density) lenses; silver coated reflective surfaces inside; multi-coating; 342' field at 1000 yards. The only minor blemish is close focusing distance of just over 8'. This is not a problem to me, as I regard that as very good. Overall, the specification of these binoculars puts a pair of Swarovskis costing seven times as much to shame! For sheer value-for-money, these are unbeatable.
You get a tight-fitting cushioned case with these, and a complicated mechanism that allows the strap to be transferred between binoculars and case. If you like, you can have a long case strap and short binocular strap, or even string the two together.
One thing I particularly like is the lens caps. The eyepieces have a bridged cap that can be threaded on the strap, so you don't lose it. The caps on the objective lenses can either be folded down in use, again so you don't lose them, or else removed completely. There is nothing worse than juggling four lens caps when trying to view something, and these binoculars provide an easy solution.
I did a lot of research before buying these. They replace a pair I have had for some 35 years. They have not disappointed me. In fact, they exceeded my expectations. Buy them with confidence that you are getting a real bargain, a high quality set of binoculars that should last a lifetime.
