I came across a deal for a pair of Vanguard 10.5x45 ED binos ($350 with a $50 mail-in rebate). I ordered the Vanguard thinking that having ED glass it is going to kick my Pentax's a#%?!. Well I received the Vanguard in great anticipation. I took them out last weekend to see who wins the battle. Surprise-surprise, Pentax is the better of the two. I am seriously in doubt about ED glass. The Vanguard CA is much worse than Pentax. Because of the glowing reviews and all the 5 Star recommendations, I thought the Vanguard can at least better the Pentax in sharpness. Mistaken again. The Pentax is the clear winner by far. So people buy this thing knowing that you are getting a bargain. Again, if you want the ultimate binos, go get a Leica but bring another $2K with you because that is what the Leica will cost you. But for us the regular folk, the Pentax is a bargain to behold.
I did a lot of research in buying these binoculars. Originally I bought a Barska 10x42 on a local retailer visit. I knew the optics could not be that good given the price ($40) but I wanted to have a pair of compact 10x binos. After using the "cheapo" binoculars for a few months, I knew I was missing a lot so I decided to research and test different units. I looked at Nikon's Monarch ($320) Leopold's ($499) offerings. For good measure the sales guy at Bass Pro showed me a pair of $2,000 Swarowski binos. All three were good. I was told for very far viewing the extra money for the Swarowski's pay dividends. Well I am a photographer and use premium lenses to capture images. I know the glass makes all the difference. I have always been a Pentax fan. The reviews on Amazon and few others pointed me to the Pentax unit. One major deciding factor was to be the warranty coverage.Read more ›
After mulling over how it would be cool to have a nice set of binocs for an upcoming trip I started to research them and at first I fell into the trap of wanting really high power binocs. Celestron had a couple of decent priced models but then I started researching "top end" binocs. I have to say I was kind of flabbergasted when I saw they could cost 3k!! (Although I really shouldn't have been that surprised since I own a dslr and those lenses can get very pricey.)
Well, I wasn't going to spend anywhere near 2-3k but I did see a pair of pentax binocs for about 1k which people said were as good as the Leica and Swarovskys. My camera gear is Pentax and they do make some top notch quality glass, so it wasn't surprising that they made quality binocs but 1k was still way more than I wanted to pay.
Then I found these and at 213 I finally found a price point I was comfortable with. And man, these are nice glasses--Night and day from cheapo brands. You can comfortably look through these for hours and not get strained. And the diopter is nice since once you get "your" spot you don't have to look through the binocs to get your right eye focused.
If you are looking for good but well priced binocs or if you've never had decent ones, go for it. You won't be disappointed.
BTW, someone mentioned that 10x is about tops for hand held and I would have to agree. Well, maybe if you are a brain surgeon you can go higher. But realistically don't go thinking you are going to be hand holding 12X+ binocs without severe shake--unless you get electronically stabilized ones$$$.
Needless to say, I think these binoculars are the best deal out there for this price, and with a lifetime warranty. I would probably pay more than double for these binoculars after looking at others. One of my best purchases.

Great binos for birding without spending alot of $$$. The Eye cup covers and lens covers are TRASH. Don't worry, they will fall off & you will lose them, but the binos work well.Published 18 months ago by Gary
