So is this crazy problem unique to me? No. If you go online, or read reviews on Amazon, you will see others have had the same problem I have. When I contacted Canon a month ago, I asked if there was any compensation or help, since my warrenty had expired. The rep said no, except that I could send the binoculars in, and they would send me a repair bill after recoating the body. Well, I have learned from other users who followed this path that the recoating process would cost almost $400, which is about the same as getting a new pair. By the way, the Canon rep said he had been with Canon for 10 years, and never heard of this problem. Well, if he was truthful, he should go on the internet!
Why would I buy a new pair after my bad experience? Because these have got to be about the greatest binoculars ever made. Just read all the gushing 5 star reviews on Amazon and elsewhere. I love these binoculars for birding. For astronomy, they are unique. You look a Jupiter, and turn on the IS, and it is rock steady, and you can see 4 moons. And you don't need a tripod!
They are relatively light. The optical quality is superb!
What causes a binocular coating to melt? There are several reasons, all of which affected my Canons. First, I live in hot humid Florida. When I transport my Canons in a car, they get hot. I don't leave them in the car permanently, but it's hard to avoid the hot temps, Second, I use sunscreen and Deet bug repellant. It got from my hands to the Canons. This may be the biggest cause of melting. Also, I used alcohol wipes to clean the lenses, and stupidly used them to clean the sweat off the rubber coating-bad move.
I am enjoying my new Canons, and will treat them differently.
Don't get sunscreen, Deet or other repellants on the Canons.
Don't clean the body with any chemicals-water or mild soap only.
Don't subject them to a hot car, or any heat source.
Somebody else may have other advice to offer, and it would be appreciated.
You cannot find an image stabilized binocular of this quality with fine optics at anywhere near this price. I can't live without these bincoculars!
When you first press that button, and suffer the immediate disappointment "do they work?", and then after a couple of seconds the image snaps and stops moving and you can SEE, you will never go back. Honestly good edge to edge IMO, although I'm sure not as good as expensive glass. But I'm very confident the IS is worth FAR more than expensive glass for resolving fine detail.
I wish the stabilization button locked, but it's easy to push so honestly not an issue. If I were birding or something where I was looking through them for very long periods, I would probably rig something but for our use, it's fine. I wish they were smaller and lighter, but then they would be less good and not have IS, so this is a good compromise.
Watch the price and grab when it's low and you will love these.
