Terrible optics. Difficult to focus. Overall poor quality for a serious birder.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Boyle Poor & insufficient inner-ocular adjustment.
Without being able to properly adjust the separation between left and right optics the images remains split into two separate images instead merged as one. This is very disturbing for high quality optics company like Nikon! I purchased another larger model of Nikon zoom binoculars from LLBean and they were able to be properly adjusted to appropriately merge into one image.

It's sharp as a tack and the zoom is so powerful that I don't use it to full power very often. At high zoom in you'll need to stabilize the binocular, so consider a monopod, or brace yourself on something. Instructions for attaching the leather neck loop are complicated (pictures only). This is my second buy of the exact same binocular. This one I'm giving to my wife to take on our African photo safari.
I briefly searched the internet for pricing. Choose LLBean because of good price and reputation.

These binoculars are an excellent value. They compare well with much more expensive binoculars. They're light-weight and easy to use. Great to take on a trip!

Rated 1 out of 5 by GrammieTLC Couldn't focus.
We ordered these after visiting the store to try them out - worked fine in the store but couldn't get our pair to focus. The focus control did nothing, so we sent them back and are hoping that the replacement pair will work. Need them for a trip to Alaska.

Rated 5 out of 5 by fishlakeguide Light and easy to use.
This is a wonderful pair of binoculars Very light and easy to carry. The focus knob and zoom lever are extremely convenient. Focus stays sharp even at high power. A great buy for the price.
