I sold my astronomy binoculars (too big to be useful, the telescope is easier) to buy my mom - a birding enthusiast - these for Mother's Day. When I got them I checked them out for myself. Great detail, good magnification and field of view, and easy to keep steady. After dark I looked at some open star clusters and found that they are great for astronomy too. Mom loves 'em, uses them almost every day from the kitchen window for urban bird-watching. I plan to buy a pair for myself for astronomy.

My wife is absolutely thrilled with these. She uses them mainly for bird watching. 8 x 40 works nicely for viewing objects approximately 50 feet away. Not too powerfull although it also does a nice job with objects 100 yards away too. Construction seems strudy as well. Would definately recommend.

These binoulars are primarily used by my wife. She Loves them and uses them for birding. They are a great bargain and provide a clear bright image. My personal feeling is that they are a little too big to be carrying around on bird walks or through the woods. I have a different pair of binoculars that are smaller and easier to focus....so these are good and especially for the price.

The 8X40 is a good range for birding but I would opt for something that is smaller and can hang from around your neck. These are really too big to lug around fields. They would be good for sports games or use at home or in a cabin but not hiking around.

I live on the 18th floor of an apartment in the Bronx, NY. Not long ago, I woke very early and found a falcon perch on the balcony railing. As the falcon surveyed the land below, I watch him or her through my window for quite some time. What a magnificent wild animal. In an instant, I was transformed into a birdwatcher.
I read serveral articles on binoculars and the Bushnell NatureView 8x40 was recommended for beginning birdwatchers, such as myself. I am very pleased with it. First, it is easy to use. Believe me, the first thing anyone wants is ease of use. Second, it is steady. When zooming in on a bird, boat, tain, or plane (yes, all of this an more can be seen from my balcony) the one thing a person wants is a clear, steady view that isn't affected by small, jerky motions from unsteady hands. (Hey, I'm not a surgeon, so don't worry.) Third, I don't have 20/20 vision, but with and without my glasses The Bushnell NatureView gave me a beautiful, clear, close up of the sailboats in bay, which is very far from my home. I look forward to sitting on my balcony with these binoculars watching birds, boat, trains and planes for a very long time, indeed. Bushnell Natureview 8x40 Porro Prism Birding Binocular

These turned out to be a good choice for my bird-watchnig mother.
Magnification is just right for sitting on our back patio and scoping out birds, from 30ft to 300ft away, with little effort to keep everything in focus. They are a bit bulky for my mothers smaller hands, and perhaps just a bit heavier than she would have liked, but all in all, they do their job well.
I made the mistake of getting a more "powerful" pair of Bushnells, the 16x32 Compact pair, thinking that the smaller size, and lighter weight might be more comfortable for her, but with a magnification of 16x, she couldn't hold 'em steady enough to get any enjoyment out of them.
So, if you're looking for a casual pair of birding binoculars, I recommend the Natureview 8x40.

I bought these binoculars for my daughter, a birdwatcher, for Christmas. She loves them. They are not as heavy as the ones we have had for years, and are much better quality than the lightweight useless ones we also possess. A good investment!

Purchased these binoculars about 18 months ago. These binos work well enough for my purpose. That is watching birds in the bird bath and on the feeders in the back yard. They focus very clearly and the view is fairly bright. But, the rubber eye cups disintegrated after only 6 months. I just peeled them off and use them without the eye cups.
