These particular pair of binoculars are crystal clear and super sharp from edge to edge. They exhibited no discernible chromatic coloring or flaring that I could see. They focus smoothly and quickly and the feel to the hand is sure and solid. Yes, they are not in the classification of lightweight portable binos but, they are smaller and lighter than many other full-size options out there. Let's see, what else, oh yes, the caps on both the objective and end lenses are great and well-designed.
All in all, a great binocular and outstanding value for the price, features, and portability - which means it will get used!
Update 8/8/16: I ended up buying 2 additional of these binoculars for gifting, and I was surprised to see the variations in performance between 3 units. All of the 3 consistently had high CA compared to my Oberwerk which affected colors significantly when viewing far away objects (quality of glass appears to be consistent). However, the MFD/close focus distance varied significantly between them. My first unit wouldn't focus anything closer than 9-10ft. The second unit could come down to about 7.5ft. The third sample focused as close as 6.5ft nearly matching the Oberwerk, but has a tight spot around the 7.5ft focus point. Not sure why this is the case, perhaps the focus is traveling more than it ought to. If colors of faraway objects matter to you, then I would not recommend this - go with Oberwerk or another model (Nikon monarch 5 appears to be a popular choice, but I haven't tested that).
I own the 10x50 size, and use it for casual star-gazing. The 50mm aperture really hauls in the light! I also use them to investigate any unsettling voices that disturb my star-gazing sessions, you can easily pick out terrestrial shapes in the dark. I haven't used them for hunting, but I could imagine you could spot game easily in low-light conditions with these amazing binoculars!
When I try to focus on mid area between center and edge, the center image goes totally blurry. I don't recommend this binoculars because main functionality is poor!!
I also doubt if these binos have really ED lenses from that sometimes I can see purple blurred color on white bird.
