A few years ago, I bought my daughter a pair pair of $600 Leupold 10x50 roof prism binocs that wee exceptional. She's an avid birder! But recently, I wanted to update my 7x26's so tried out a lot of binocs. For about $120, this pair of porro prism binocs performs exceptionally well. They are not water-proof, fog-proof or light weight. There is some curvature of field, and some chromatic aberration at the edges. But the view is fantastic!

Seriously... I don't go bird watching in the rain, and frankly, the bird is always centered while trying to ID. So all those 'negative' aspects that raise the price to $1,000 or more just don't offer true value for money, at least for me. If you have been following binocular design for a while, you will know that porro prism designs are much easier to optimize, and that many early roof prism model were very dark and had similar negative properties. Some birding sites actually recommend similar Nikon porro prism models for quality of view. I also like the rubberized grip of this model, they fit the hand well and have good eye clearance, though I don't wear glasses.

If you can, visit a store that lets you try out a number of models... you'll be surprised at how much binocular $120 can buy!

I bought these Aculon A211 10x50 Binoculars on sale from a retail sporting goods store. I was able to test them out in the store and also outside. I liked the bright,sharp and contrasty view these Binoculars provided. Everything looked great at the store so I decided to buy a pair.

They feel solid in the hand and all the adjustments are smooth and well dampened. The rubber coating is solid and provides both protection and grip. Nikon used a different texture on the thumb grips similar to what my Digital SLR has.

The optics are very sharp compared to an older pair of Minolta 10-22x50 Binoculars that I was borrowing from my father. While this particular pair on Aculon A211 is fixed at 10 power I can actually see more detail in every type of lighting condition compared to my fathers Minolta's at 22 power! The images are free of distortion once you are focused on your subject. However I did notice that if something is out of focus the bottom of the image will have a sort of fisheye effect until the image is brought into focus. Once focused on something the distortion disappears.

One more benefit to these A211's is the generous eye relief. So if you wear glasses like I do then you won't have any issues. The shoulder strap is the same size as the one on my Nikon D7000 DSLR so its plenty big for a pair of 10x50 binoculars like this. The Aculon 10x50's are not heavy at all.

These Binoculars come with a nice sized case which has plenty of room to fit the Binoculars in. You don't have to fiddle with anything just slip the Binoculars right in and your on your way.

The front and rear lens caps are good not great. The rear cap slips on easy, but the front caps clip onto the inside rim on the rubber overhang on the objective lens. They have a secure fit but I think they might get lost easily if you don't pay attention to them.

Overall I'd recommend these to anyone. They are sharp and well made Binoculars at a great price.

I am happy that I bought these binoculars. They have greatly expanded my ability to see objects both near and far. I live on the 23rd floor of an apartment building and with these things I can see landmarks 30 + miles away, and I can read billboards clearly right down the street. I know I could have spent more and likely gotten better, but I am very happy with these!

Crystal clear lenses, great for the occasional (dry weather) wildlife watching we do on our property. Also easy to use and store. Soft side case is well designed.

Very good binoculars for the price. Once I received these I immediately tried them out and was pleasantly surprised. Good range and clarity. I am taking them on a cruise to Alaska in June where I am sure they will get a workout. I would recommend these for beginners to intermediate use. Great for sky watching too.

We love the binoculars. We were going to get the 10 x 42 Nikons but when we compared them, the 10 x 50's made the subjects look so much more clear. It was a no brainier on which ones to buy. We are very happy with them and have had friends buy them after trying them.

Excellent! I received these as a gift and find them to have excellent clarity with a 3d like effect. Easy to use without a tripod if you have steady hands. I enjoy them so much I will pick up another pair for shorter distance . I have also tried a pair of Simmons 10x50 for comparison and although they were sharp the Nikon excels in clarity. I have used these for stargazing also

I've used these for the past few nights in my urban (light-polluted) area. The few stars that were visible looked bright and shiny. Tonight I viewed a new moon, and was excited over the various lunar features I could see. I've ordered a tripod adapter so I can mount the binox on a tripod to minimize the jiggles. One thing: the diopter adjustment (right eyepiece) is very hard to turn -- I'm hoping that will ease up over time, although I don't think I'll need to adjust often anyway. The binox feel fairly light, at least lighter than I was expecting based on my dad's old all-metal binox. The eyepiece cover fits loosely although hasn't fallen off unexpectedly. I'm new to binocular astronomy and these binox are the first serious ones I've owned -- if you're in the market for binoculars, I'd say these are fine, but you would do well to get info and guidance from more experienced binocular-users (eg, cloudynights.com).
