I have these binoculars for about a month and I really like them. I like the fact that they are variable from 12 through 60 power although you really need a tripod for steady viewing it high power which I have. They seem to be made well and the zoom mechanism works well. These are large binoculars and weigh a little more then the smaller models but not that much more. I would recommend them to anyone that's looking to buy a more powerful pair of binoculars but you should have a tripod for the higher power settings or else your target will shake to much.

These binoculars are heavy and can only be considered useful when mounted to a tripod, which I already had. The optics on my pair do not seem that clear as some of the other types of binoculars that I own. I have had some difficulty trying to get good focus, but keeping them steady is quite a trick especially since the focus wheel does not turn with ease. I originally thought they would be good for casual star gazing but I think a telescope might be better.

My reference standard for this review is Zeiss Dailyt roof prism armored 10x40 B T*, fast focus at 0.7 turns, close focus about 22 feet, FOV about 340 feet. Decades old and still going strong. Barska Gladiator 12-36x70 Zoom I originally purchased from my local Big 5 and evaluated for a week before return.

Build: Body/frame appears to have plastic ends at housing where the prism is located. Center hinge for eye spacing has good solid retention and this area appears to be of metal. Tubes unknown material. Center shaft of focus knob is threaded for tripod adaptor under plastic cap. Zoom lever appears to be metal. Center focus knob plastic.

Case/Strap: Case does come with binocs but never removed from packaging, not evaluated.

Eye Cups: Not evaluated.

Diopter: Feel is fair with no click stops. Range of adjustment is limited, had to adjust to extreme end, not the norm for me.

Durability: Most likely fragile because of the long tubes and being porro design.

Focus: Probably about 1.3 turns stop to stop. Feel is fair with glue popping noise during use sometimes. Close focus perhaps about 30 feet.

Lens Caps: Fair.

View: Center focus fair, edge focus minus fair at 12x. Focus at 36x is minus fair yet it does work, image is not a blob. FOV is poor at about 150 feet at 12x and smaller at 36x, this is the most unpleasant element of these binocs, tunnel vision.

Conclusion: Some would say to avoid zoom binocs and generally I would agree. I would not say these are unusable yet I wouldn't consider them decent either. Perhaps novelty would be the best term for these binocs. Best to keep overall magnification lower and/or limit zoom range. Even on the high-end of binocs I don't believe any maker makes anything like this.

Outdoor sightseeing has been a great experience with a pair of these I bought last year. I wasn't quite sure at first whether this was a product worthwhile since at greater zoom levels -no matter what the product details say- your image will go a little blurry coz your the moment your hands shake any binocular will loose focus. Again having said that, I wouldn't deny the fact that I also bought a great and sturdy pair of tripod with these... I would still say--These are a great pair. I am glad to have invested in a good pair of binoculars.

I received my binocular sooner that expected,.I was impressed with the packing and care to keep it safe from damage. The binocular is good quality materials and workmanship but the tripod adapter is very unstable,...more suited for a regular smaller binocular. The optics are fair, Not the best, BUT for the price a good deal.
It is a very heavy piece of equipment, so it needs a more solid mount, the larger ones with the rod mount is what this one needs,...So you better have arms that are very strong to use this binocular for a while ,....Im designing a different mount to steady it. I like this product, but as most things are these days, could be better, here again the price is comporable with the product.

I bought these binocs because of the price and realized I should have spent the extra money. The low to mid magnification is good to fair, but the full zoom is out of focus and creates double vision and a headache. Maybe I just got a defective pair, but I'm not gonna give them a second chance. I'm going to spend the extra money and get a pair of Oberwerks.

I liked the product and price but it does have some drawbacks . They are heavy and hard to hold steady with out a tripod or pole and the zoom is fine up to 20 + power the high end max cannot be focused . This the same problem I had with my other set but if you use these under the max they are great .

These are awesome! I bought them for an upcoming trip to the Grand Canyon and didn't want to spend a fortune. I tried them out when I got them and it was raining out, so I looked up at the trees and could see the drops of water falling off the pine needles of a pine about 40 feet from the house and about 70 feet tall. Lots of nice features and mounts very well to my video camera tripod.
