Wonderful for birdwatching!
 
My hubby and I are amateur birders - we have a very expensive set of field glasses but they are so heavy I cannot use them for extended periods. So, I bought myself this nice Bushnell binocular - and I LOVE it! Very good for viewing, crisp images, and lightweight enough to use all day long without tiring my arms out! I recommend them as a good yet inexpensive binocular.

A great buy for the beginner, also a wonderful gift.
 
I purchased these binoculars and a guide to regional birds as a gift for my father who enjoys amateur bird-watching(mostly from his lovely back porch at our country home). I don't know the first thing about buying binoculars, so I relied heavily on the reviews of other purchasers. Happily, I was not disappointed. These binoculars are lightweight and very simple to use,which my father loves. The sheer clarity and visibility actually shocked me upon first use. The only downfall being that thi...

Get a pair and get going!
 
These ain't Leica's but they work darn good!With these binoculars you can. . . Check out the birds and see who's making that racket! Excellent begining birder glasses.The close focus ability is great for butterfly watchers( 8 feet)get close without getting close!Look at the heavens and see that all is not as it seems.many "stars" are actually double stars, clusters or galaxies!Easily read a license plate 100 yards away!well worth the money!

Very happy with purchase
 
Our first pair of binoculars, and my wife and I could not be happier. Clear, easy to focus, light weight. Great clarity at near distances; we have a Mourning Dove nest right off of our balcony -- less than six feet away -- and these binoculars allow us to to observe excellent detail. We're very happy with them; so much so that I just purchased the Bushnell Powerview 16x50 pair!

What these eyes have seen..
 
I bought a pair of these last year, and I haven't been disappointed.What good are binoculars in the city, you ask? Well, I've found a number of uses for 'em. I use 'em for casual birding in Central Park - I'm even on an internet mailing list that tells me when unusual birds have stopped through.I take 'em to the opera and the symphony too! If you can't afford the $350 seats, these binocs help to bring the nuances of the performance into your range of vision. Amazing to check out the se...

Excellent buy
 
I'm impressed. For the $$$, these are awesome. I use them mostly for watching birds on the feeders around my house, and for looking at the moon. Very nice. They are easy to use, crisp, and light. I can see better with these than with my 10x60 binoculars (not that I understand the 8x40 vs. 10x60 :) Bottom line: If you are after perfection, don't buy these -- instead spend $$$$$ and get a great pair of binoculars. If you aren't quite that demanding, aren't a millionaire, and just want to be able t...

Boresight error
 
Although they work fine for close up (less than 50 feet) views, the pair I received had a significant boresight error between the two sides. This results in double images of far away objects. I suppose it has to do with the all-plastic construction. There was also a piece of plastic missing next to the focus control.

OK for the price once I get them reglued.
 
These binocs seem ok, given the low price, for the amateur birder, sports fan and theatre buff. However the rubber eye-cups virtually immediately popped off (I was adjusting for my glasses) and will need to be reglued. Bushnell said they'd do it for free but think of the time and postage wasted so I'll glue them myself.

why do they take so long to ship?
 
Hi I ordered these on 12-5-05 and they have still not shipped I was hoping to get them for Christmas but now maybe Valentines Day? Now they say I won't get them until March I would choose other binoculars. The binoculars have finally shipped. We will finally be able to see if they are worth the wait.

Great for backyard birding
 
I bought this so we could get a better look at the birds in our backyard. We keep it by the kitchen window, and find ourselves using it at least once a week to peek at a feathered friend who is visiting. Nice clear lens, pretty easy to find objects through them. Certainly does the job we need it to do. Don't buy this if you do your birding out in the field - these are not particularly portable nor leightweight and are not meant to be; buy a binocular specifically made for that purpose.
