Impressive Optical Quality and Size!
Friday, 19 May 2017  | 

The optical quality is seriously impressive - it's a close match for my Zeiss binos, but with a much wider field of view, and a much smaller, lighter body. Resolution, colour neutrality and image brightness are all top notch. Contrast is good, but not outstanding. Optical quality is maintained across a very large part of the field of view - the sweet spot is very large. Eye relief is generous and eye positioning not critical. To have this level of optical quality in a compact, lightweight bin is fantastic. After a month of solid use, this is definitely my favourite pair of bins - I use it more than my Zeiss 8x42's! Minor gripes - the fit and finish of the rubber armouring is a bit 'lumpy' and loose on my model - the eyepiece is so large that I occasionally get crescent glare at the bottom edges in bright conditions - the neck strap and rainguard are a bit low-rent for such a seriously good binocular. Overall, Opticron have a winner on their hands with this design though! I might even be tempted by the 10x32's!

An "alpha" view for a sensible price.
Saturday, 29 April 2017  | 

Very pleased, and surprised, by such an outstandingly clear, crisp, bitingly sharp view.
Has to be the best compact sized carry everywhere binocular I have seen.

Lovely huge wide view. Fingers wrap nicely around the slender barrels. Perfect weight.

I'm a +6.5 glasses wearer and comfortably see the whole view with one click out of the eye shields.
The lens coatings are wonderful, they add a brilliant vibrancy to a dull scene.
I can't get over how bright they are, and that's coming from a previous Swarovski 7x42 SLC neu.

Highly recommended.
