5.0 out of 5 stars Very sharp Binoculars for the price!!, September 10, 2013
This review is from: Nikon 8248 ACULON A211 10x50 Binocular (Black) (Camera)
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.

The eye relief is only 11.8mm on this binocular. Not really recommended for all eyeglass wearers.

Try before you buy, if at all possible.
