Excellent Binoculars
 
These give a very nice, immersive view. They're sharp, bright, and reasonably contrasty. They get four stars rather than five because the adjustable right eyepiece does not maintain proper focus when the main focus wheel is adjusted to a different distance. It must be readjusted each time. I don't consider this a deal breaker, but some might. The view thru these is quite nice; better than I expected for the price. Collimation in my sample was very good; these feel good in the hands, and are ligh...

Good Binocs for a Good Price
 
I searched all over the 'net for reviews of this binocular, but could find nothing, so I decided to take a chance, get the Carson 10X42s and review them myself. Here's what I found...The Carson is manufactured in China, natch. Fit and finish are good. The body is covered with a drab green rubber-like material. This provides a waterproof exterior (the description of these did not mention waterproofing for this model, but according to specs on the focus wheel, they are waterproof) and makes ...

BANG FOR THE BUCK
 
AT $65 THESE ARE THE BANG FOR THE BUCK! TIME WILL TELL AS TO HOW THEY HOLD UP, BUT AS OF NOW THEY SEEM WELL WORTH THE PRICE.AFTER PERSONALLY VIEWING A NUMBER OF TOP NAME BRANDS AND CONSIDERING THE PRICES, I PURCHASED THEM FOR ANTELOPE, DEER, AND ELK HUNTING AND HAVEN'T REGRETTED THE PURCHASE. OF COURSE, THERE ARE BETTER OPTICS OUT THERE, BUT THESE DO THE JOB WELL AND FULFILL THE PURPOSE - ESPECIALLY SINCE THEY ARE FULLY MULTICOATED. WORKS FOR ME.

OK for occasional use
 
I owned these for over a year and a half and got them for $68. They are just shy of enough eye relief for the glasses I wore. I now have new glasses and they don't meet the eye relief I need now. I don't remember them getting knocked into anything but I recently noticed the whole left eyepiece (not eyecup) was crooked. I thought it was just a pressed fit so I tried to straighten it and it came right off. I realized that it's a screw on and it's made of plastic. I screwed it back on but it was s...

Mighty good deal for the money.
 
I've got to say I'm really pleased with my new Carson 8 x 42 close focus binoculars....easily the best binoculars I've seen for less than a hundred dollars.They're good looking, shock resistant, water-proof, have a good strap, a decent case...are easy to focus....very decent, well-made birding binos. I'd rate the view through them as almost as good as my Nikon Monarchs...a pair I really loved...but that were stolen...but, the Carson binoculars cost about a third as much.

Great Product
 
The quality is good. It is not the smallest binocular but it is ok size. The bigger set of lense covers are kind of flimsy, they do not stay on place, but I do not care much. I consider the quality of the product for the price an excellent value!!

Good Binoculars for a Great Price
 
I have owned a pair for over a month now and have used them fairly intensely. I got them for birding and have been very pleased with their performance. Images are very clear, field of view feels wide and open, and the close focus works well and is very nice when you need it. They have a good weight to them but aren't heavy. A neck strap is included and it's very decent and comfortable to wear. Build quality seems solid, I expect these to last a long time.The focus knob turns smoothly and focusin...

Good inexpensive close-focus Binocular
 
This set of binoculars fit my needs for close in observation of birds at a feeder. Without going to the $300 range, they are ideal. After use of about three weeks, they have performed well. The only item that I dislike is the lens covers for the objective. For some strange reason they are to fit inside rather than fit over like the eyepiece ones. They were manufactured too small, and as a consequence, readily fall off-a definite nuisance. The US distributor cannot be faulted as this is a manufac...

Good performance for the money
 
Good performance for the money. Binoculars work and feel much like the more expensive Nikon Monarchs 10X42 we have. The strap and case quality is a step down, but the Carsons are a bit brighter.
