The magnification is fine, the optics are very good, and are sharp and clear. Focusing is near the zoom control, making this camera so easy to use.
I bought it for bird watching and love them as they are a small pair of binoculars that weigh under 10 oz...very easy to carry in my jacket pocket.
UPDATE: 3/3/14: these have he'd up great and I like the quality of the glass and the lightweight more and more. You can't go wrong at this low price.
Good optics (not in the league of German $2000 glass, but somewhat close)
Well designed, easy to focus, easy to zoom and easy to adjust diopter for eye differential, it does not get a lot better than this.
It also has pretty fairly close focusing capabilities, considering its magnification range (8-16x).
Also fairly bright considering its reduced size. I have occasionally used at night with passably good results.
It loses one star primarily for two reasons:
1- In spite of its fine Japanese heritage (in engineering) it also, regrettably, reveals its Chinese heritage in the manufacture.
My unit came with one of the oculars poorly assembled and at the beginning I noticed that it did not maintain the diopter setting
consistently. Once I figured the problem, I unscrewed the ocular and quickly and easily corrected the problem. Just plain sloppy assembly.
2- This binocular has a very limited field angle, noticeably less than units of similar size and magnification power. Definitely not good for sporting events or other activities requiring a wide field of view.
Just one minor complaint:
On warm/humid days, because of the opctics short eye-relief, the lens can get misted up / foggy when you put your eyes close to the rear eyepiece it to see through, this can be very annoying. If this bothers you, get a larger binocular, but if you are looking for small size with high quality optics, at a decent price, get this one without a doubt.
It is easy to adjust the variable zoom with one finger, as well as the focus ring, which sometimes needs to be done when adjusting zoom.
The adjustment knob for differing eye strengths pushes in to prevent accidental adjustment.
Clarity is very good, although as should be expected visible light drops at the higher zoom levels.
One beef: there are mountings for a neck strap but none was included in the box.
Otherwise, I am quite satisfied with these binoculars.

Perfect for football games at the Big House. Very easy to hold and manipulate. Very clear. I love the feature that allows me to set two different levels of magnification.Published 3 months ago by Amazon Customer
Very clear image quality and light gathering at 8x magnification, but clearly drops off in clarity and brilliance as you zoom to 16x. From 8 to 10x, very good. Read morePublished 3 months ago by JustTheFactsMame
