I love these binoculars. I have two of the very latest and best (and expensive) models of 10x32 and 10x42 binoculars. I was hoping that these would replace one of those and save me some money. Well, no - they aren't noticeably brighter than the very best roof prisms, they're a little more fussy to use, have a narrower FOV, and have slightly more CA on really challenging targets. The only practical area that they beat the very best alpha roofs is on weight - being noticeably lighter than any top tier 10x42.
BUT, they're still very good optically. So good, that I'm happy to use them on a daily basis. And they have a classic character that the modern roofs can't match - like using a piece of optical history (albeit with the best modern coatings). The lack of armour doesn't bother me - I've invested a couple of additional quid in a pair of rubber tethered objective lens caps, which provide some protection in the area most likely to hit the ground first, and I'm happy. They give me a joy to carry and use that's different from my other binoculars - so, I'm keeping all three pairs, at least for now.
So, if you want a classic instrument that still performs very well, or a lightweight binocular that gives you most of the performance of the very best at less than half the price (and you don't wear glasses), then give these a very close look.
