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!
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.

It's a really good binocular. It's kind of heavy so it's probably not something I would go hiking with but I would definitely take it to go whale watching.Published 2 months ago by J. Li
