This has to be one of the best inexpensive zoom binoculars I have ever seen, and the price is so reasonable!
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.

This is probably the best inexpensive zoom binocular. I have tried Barska, Nikon Eagleview & Travelite, and other zoom binoculars that cost four times as much, and this one is just on a different level for a lot less money. It is a lot smaller than it looks in the picture and comes with a great leather case. The binocular is very clear, sharp and easy to focus. It appears to be very durable as well.

This is absolutely the best pair of binoculars I have owned. The close focusing is great and the zoom stays in focus throughout the range. I highly recommend these binoculars to anyone.

This is one surprisingly good binocular for well under $100
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.

Pleasantly surprised how light, small and powerful it is. The light collection and image sharpness is very good for a 21 mm objective. Compares favorably with Binoculars with objectives twice the size. For the price more than makes up any shortcomings. The zoom controls are smooth and very easy to reach while viewing. The same with the focusing knob. The diopter calibration is a little hard to operate while viewing compared to other Binoculars, but the fact that pushes in out of the way is a good feature. Another good feature is the three positions of the ocular rings. While viewing it is difficult to keep it from "shaking" at 16x, also normal considering the power-size (It is not a Carl Zeiss). Ideal binocular for backpackers, travelers, show viewing. Overall considering price, power, image quality, ease of use and portability I am happy with it. would recommend this to friend.

I purchased a second for my wife. It has a great light gathering capability and the zoom works well. We use them for college football and to take on trips. They have been durable and tolerant of some moisture (would not call them waterproof). I believe they are a great value for a compact binocular.

It is an excellent binocular, with a very good zoom for its size, and a very decent field of view, even at 16x.

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.

These binocs feel like excellent quality and are extremely compact. They are smaller than I expected and come with a very good case. Just what I needed for my frequent travelling.
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.
