Celestron UpClose G2 10X50 Binocular 71256,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Celestron UpClose G2 10x50 Porro Binocular 71256 (Electronics)
I received my binocular shipped with great alacrity; ordered on July 15 and delivered on July 16. This purchase was made amid a tremendous quantity of possible choices based on features, quality and, of course cost. As I was working on a budget I wanted to get the most bang for the buck, so, while pondering what I could possibly get in this price range, I finally pressed the purchase button on this item and hoped for the best. I can truthfully say that, for the money, I am very satisfied, so far. These binoculars yield sharp, bright image, doing what they were designed to do. While they are heavier than compact binoculars, the trade off is a brighter image under lower light levels. Center focus is smooth.
UPDATE: Sept. 24, 2013 I have to say that this binocular is worth another star after enjoying using them for some time now. I take very good care of my optics, so I cannot speak to their ruggedness, but they work well for me and they are a joy to use.
