Not what I expected - 08/12/2014

by Holly P. from Beaufort, NC

I did a fair amount of research leading up to my purchase of a new pair of binoculars including reading many reviews and comparisons of various products and doing a live chat with Eagle Optics. These seemed to be what I was looking for: close IPD, short close focus, reasonable quality at a reasonable price. However, I was disappointed--the binoculars seemed heavy, unbalanced and awkward in my hands. Also, the focus knob moved clockwise for closer focus rather than the opposite direction. Eagle Optics was great about processing my return quickly for a full refund.

Celestron Granite 8x42 binocular review - 06/29/2012

by Mary from greater Boston area, MA

I purchased this pair of binoculars after reading a number of reviews about it as well as similar models. I use it primarily for birding, and so far I like it quite a lot. The focus is easy and quick, and once set, it stays focused. It is slightly heavier than my previous pair, but one advantage of the weight is that it does not bounce around much when I walk. The only thing I don't particularly care for is the neck strap. it seems very thick and stiff, but perhaps because it is new.

very good binoculars - 04/24/2012

by J. Staples from Nashville, TN

I bought these as my first pair of good-quality binoculars for novice birding. They are easy to use with clear optics and a rapid focus. The weight is reasonable for non-compact binoculars, and they are easy to hold and adjust even though I have a lot of arthritis in my hands. The only drawback I've found is that the straps do not snap on and off for easy use with the harness. I have enjoyed them so far and would definitely recommend them.
