Clear, sharp, bright and just beautiful!
 
I'm using the Steiner 7x50 for Whale Watching here in Sydney. They are clear, sharp, bright and weatherproof making them ideal for this purpose.The built in compass is one of the main reason for my purchase as it makes it extremely easy to give a pods bearing to other observers and to find them again.Just be aware that these Binoculars are fitted with regional compasses (i.e. Northern and Southern hemispheres) and will only work properly in the region their calibrated for.

studly working binoculars
 
Steiner puts superb optics in fantastically rugged housings. Also, I'll testify that massive protruding compass actually settles usefully quickly and is easy to read. However, I've had 3 Steiners, this and two Commander III (their most waterproof and impact resistant model); none has proven to be waterproof and the Observer slightly self-destructed soon after arrival. I should have said none has proven to be fogproof, only one actually flooded and then only the compass, but when condensation ins...

Steiner 7x50 observer
 
I just bought a set of these binoculars. They have got to be the best binoculars i have ever looked through. For the money you can't beat them. I have looked through Leica, swarovski, and nikon, and I believe these are every bit as good if not better.

Good optics, useless compass.
 
Beware of these binoculars.The optics are good but there seems to be a fundamental problem with the compass.On the first pair, the compass was very blurry and unable to be read with the binoculars horizontal.These were sent back.Not only did the compass of the replacement pair have exactly the same problem,it had the additional problem of sticking badly as the binos were moved, even if the movement was slow and in the horizontal plane.I would be very wary of buying ...

Nothing special
 
Good binoculars,Inside the box, instead of a meaningful and proper user manual with technical specs, there is just a general leaflet. It is not clear whether there is image stabilisation as well.Could have bought same/similar quality at a cheaper price...
