Review of Fuji 10x50 FMTR-SX binocular
rab from Tucson AZ
I own several wide angle, low-power binoculars, and was hoping that a 10x50 could replace a 10x70 for casual daylight viewing as well as stargazing.
The Fuji FMTR-SX offered the best combination of wide angle and long eyerelief, plus the bonus of a flat field.
Unfortunately, its eyelens is seated below a fairly thick rubber eyeguard that, even folded down, makes it impossible for me to see the whole field of view. Also, it is harder to hold a smaller pupil steady than it is with the larger pupil, so that for stargazing, at least, the 7mm pupil is preferrable to the 5mm, even though the power is the same.
If you search the internet, you will find many reviews of this Fujinon 10x50 Polaris, reviews by technical websites, as well as independent purchasers. They all say the same thing, that this is a great pair of Binoculars, and they truly are. They are so sharp and bright, and have excellent eye relief, as well as being built like a tank, they are heavy, but I do not mind the weight. I have done plenty of hiking with heavy Binocs, from Steiner 10x50 to Steiner 7x50 M22, You just carry them in a case with a shoulder strap (case rests against your hip) And by the way, I also own compact Binocs,(Roof Prism,Center Focus and such) but I will hike with these Fujinon 10x50's I highly recommend this Binocular, as well as Eagle Optics as a Five Star Dealer. Shipping was fast, the price was excellent, and the shipping packaging was great, shipping box was completely filled with foam peanuts (nothing bouncing around in that shipping box) I hope this review helps out.
Fujinon FMTR 10 x50

I was after some good Bins. The sort you buy once in your life. After reading countless reviews and forums you do get and idea of the direction you think you wish to head. I decided i wanted something that could take a bit of a knock and still be in good condition. The 10x50 are not small nor are they light but for me they are just wonderful! I really couldn't be happier. I go mostly fly fishing in some pretty tough country and I knew they would get knocked around. Only having them for a month or so now is early days but thanks so much to people who take the time to write good reviews about these sorts of products.Eagle themselves were as they say deliver ontime no troubles at all and a great price Steven

These are great binoculars. I use them mainly on a tripod/monopod, because of the weight, but the harness works really well with them. Hadn't had much experience with individual focus, but I got used to it quickly. You can't beat the optics: I don't see how they could be better; maybe if I paid 5 times more I could get a pair that was just a little bit better. I should have bought these years ago: I really enjoy the brighter, larger, deeper field of view.
Review of Fujinon Polaris 10x50 FMTR-SXm

Excellent optics, wide flat field of view. Easy to hand hold, despite being a bit heavy. Solid build quality. Large eyepieces and relief make the binocular quite nice to use.

Gerry from Frederick Maryland
I hunt deer in the winter,groundhogs all summer.I have several pair of big box hunting store bino's and I am not getting any younger so I wanted see more and better.The first day in the field I could easily find groundhogs at 600 to 800 plus yards. My son with the big box bino's had a very difficult time seeing them without them moving.I am VERY impressed with the Fujinon 10x50 Polaris.Now my son wants a pair.Most of the reviews I read said"when you need to find a star or something else you always fall back on the Fujinon" Why did I not do this earlier? Amazing clarity,focus at all distance,depth. Definitely worth the price!!
Fujinon 10x50 FMTR-SX Binocular
Yang from Singapore
These are excellent astronomy binoculars. After 10 years I finally own one of these. The image is sharp to almost the edge and field is flat. On-axis sharpness, contrast and transmission is excellent. I easily see more stars compared to my previous 10x42 Nikon binoculars even in light polluted places. Furthermore, these binoculars are very ruggard and I like the fact that I can just 'dump' it into my luggage bag without worrying that it get damaged. Being rubber armoured, it is not necessary to have a case. The only draw back of this binoculars for astronomy applications is the weight. If one needs to observe for long hours, it can get a bit strenous. However, to alleviate this, I use this binoculars in conjunction with my monopod. In this way, I achieve better stabilization (much less body/ hand shake and thus higher resolution) and way less fatigue to my arms. :)

These are excellent marine binoculars, well built and excellent optics. One caveat is that the binoculars are heavy and can be hard to hold up for long.
