The Magnacraft 10x50 Binoculars I purchased, did look good on the website but falls far short in the quality. I have a decent pair of 10X25 binoculars and was hoping to replace them with the stronger Magnacraft 10X50. After receiving it, I found the Magnacraft to be weaker than than my existing 10X25 pair. The optics were distorted and the focus hardly worked. There was even a very small button compass between the eye piece (a nice touch) but it didn't work at all. I contacted Amazon Customer Service and they were just GREAT! I'm returning them and will purchase another pair with a brand that I'm more familiar with.

Magnacraft 10 X 50 Binoculars w/ Built in Compass
....compass doesnt work, the 10x magnification is average, eye piece cover is flawed in that covers both with single piece of rubber and needs to have binoculars extended for it not to fall off.
Should have spent more $$ but for $5.99 what did i expect :)
Cheap throwaway pair to leave in the boat and better than nothing......lol though seriously how bad does manufacturing have to be to not get a compass to work.
