After seeing a pair of Bushnells with a friend, buying a binoc had been on my mind for a while. With a clear lack of knowledge, did some research and found that this particular pair was highly rated for normal use (i.e., sports, bird watching etc). They are extremely light, small and portable and comes in an attractive carrycase. Simple to use and adjust dioptre and vision. However, would recommend higher spec ones if you are a serious user.
