5.0 out of 5 stars Great pair of binoculars for the price., October 3, 2005
By 
I was looking for a medium-powered pair of binoculars for back yard astronomy. I had picked up a pair of Bushnell 10X50's for a few dollars less than the Nikon's and I was disappointed with the quality (there was something wrong with the optics... could not get them to ever completely focus). I promptly returned them and picked up these. What a difference! They were much clearer than the Bushnell's, and the focus is extremely sharp in the center. I take them out just about every night and they offer me a great view of the sky. If you're looking for a good all-around pair of binoculars that's worth more than what you're paying, look no further!

Which size did you get? I plan on getting a pair for astronomy also.

I will be wearing glasses when I use mine. Does this means I should get a larger pair of objective lenses?

Bushnell is junk. Nikon is not. I'd given up on binocs until I tried Nikon. The optics are far, far superior. I've never bought a pair of Bushnells that I cared anything for!

This EXACT same review is also listed for the 12X50 pair- did you review two different binos?

Todd's reviewing this model: Color Name:Black|Size Name:10x50
"This review is from: Nikon 7218 Action 10 X 50mm Binoculars (Electronics)"
The review is "the same" because of the way Amazon's allowed Nikon to group 5 different models together. So... No, Todd is not reviewing the 12x50 or the 7x50 models -

Todd, thanks for your review. You reviewed this unit in 2005; do you still have them, and find them useful? How have they stood up to the years?
