Overall I am underwhelmed by these binoculars
on 14 January 2016
I have to say I was disappointed with these binoculars, I had great expectations for them but first time out of the box they gave me no more perceived magnification than my old 10x42 Bushnell set. I also didn't like the rubberised grip, it was slightly sticky to the touch and seems to pick up dust and dirt particles which then didn't look very nice. The single focus ring was hard to turn also meaning that I couldnt dntnseem to achieve the right focus for my sight easily.
The price looked good when I ordered these, but I am always wary of so called discounted items, so I don't see how anyone would have purchased them at the full list price. The quality was good with a strap and fabric/plastic carry case.
Overall I think that there are other brands with smaller magnification which do just as good a job but at the same time represent better value for money, in my opinion you are just paying for the Nikon brand name. It makes me realise just how good my Bushnells 10x42's roof prism set really are and they were almost half the price I paid for these Nikon's
Sadly I have to say I returned these for a full refund, I can't fault Amazon though, the free delivery option came in the same time that the 'paid extra for' service would have arrived, plus free returns when dropped at your local post office.
