Great for amateurs,
This review is from: 8x25 PCI BINOCULAR (Electronics)
I bought these for my husband to use on our safari/whale watching trip in South Africa. When we got there our hosts brought out their (large and professional looking) binoculars for me to use, and I immediately worried that I should have bought him something bigger and more powerful. However when we swapped, the magnification was pretty comparable, and the Olympus definitely won overall because they are amazingly compact. He pretty much wore them round his neck the entire time, as they are very light, and were perfect for our needs in terms of spotting animals and whales. I don't know if serious birdspotters would want these but for first timers they are brilliant, and the price is good too. Next time we go on a trip like that I will be buying another pair for myself.
