To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I am basically very pleased with this purchase. I have to rate it down one star because the dioptre ring on the right hand side is solidly stuck and will not move, which means I have had to return them for a repair. I have used them nevertheless without adjusting that ring and the quality of viewing is excellent. They are light for their size and easy to handle. Threading the strap is not an easy job, but you only do that once.
I use binoculars for birdwatching and these are very clear and have a good field of view. I was struggling to decide which binoculars to purchase in this price range and strongly believe these are some of the best low price binoculars available.
I love the clarity of these and the quick focus; they are very easy to use and hold. I use my bins daily so they really need to be good all rounders and these are now the favourite of all four pairs owned. Just took these to the Dales and they were superb. Great for bird / nature watching. The image is brilliantly clear, would very much recommend and such a bargain price. I deliberated buying as was tempted to their superiors but struggle to see the difference when these more than adequately cover all that is required. Love them! The only downside, as previously mentioned, is the lens covers. All four are loose and these do prove rather trying to keep putting back on. Can't quite figure why Nikon make such a good quality pair of bins and then supply such losable covers! Will tolerate this however as they are a great item and I really enjoy using them. Next day delivery too - simply superb service Amazon.
The binoculars came highly rated and they proved to be ideal for our safari trip, the lenses proved very good. One issue we found was that the lens caps do not stay attached to the straps and one was lost very quickly which is a pain as cannot find a suitable replacement. If they can resolve this I would have given 5*.
