It arrived quickly, works OK.

The field of vision is not that big- I suppose it is what it says it is but just for reference- I was in the middle of the upper balcony and felt I was seeing the stage too close to be useful. If you want to look at details it is probably fine if they are not moving. But I found it hard to have two characters in view at any one time. I ended up using a friend's pair of binnoculars with a wider field of vision next time I went to the theater and it worked much better.
But all that said, these binoculars are very stylish, they seem solid enough, they do focus in, they arrived very quickly. The leather bag smells a bit- perhaps it is the dye they used? Don't know- the bag needed to air out a bit- initially it made everything around it smell like chemicals. After it aired out it was fine. I ended up giving mine away as a gift as I didn't see myself using them again.
