Nothing comes close!Review by Pallid Phil
To my eyes, these are the best birding binocular, unsurpassed. The wide field of view, short focussing distance, crisp clear image, superb balance, ease of use and general ergonomics including the flawlessly placed focussing wheel will speak for itself if you allow it to.
I've had mine now for over two years and often compare them to other bins across the entire range and nothing comes close. Try it for yourself! Undoubtedly the best binocular to date!
