Haven´t had them for long, but they are definitely sleek bins. When researching for my purchase, I came to these because the specs seemed to be what I was after: 10x, large field of view, and long eye-relief. I was hesitant, however, because there was no mention of them being "fully" multi-coated or phase corrected. Even so, there was a very positive review on the "bestbinocularreview" site, in which the reviewer compares them to other "benchmark" binoculars which, I suppose, are fully multicoated and phase corrected. I wondered, how could binoculars that are just multicoated be the same or even better than the others that have such lens and prism treatments? I don´t know. Notwithstanding, the proof of the pudding is in the eating. Hence, the proof of the binoculars is in the view and the view through these is very good. I am more impressed with these than the Diamondbacks. (which are similarily priced) Having said that, I´m not sure if I don´t enjoy the view through the Bushnell Legacy 8x42 (which I purchased at the same time) even more. A lot of reviewers speak of the "wow" factor when looking through a pair of binoculars they like. That´s what happens when I look through my bushnell legacy: "wow". Why, because they're a fraction of the price of my Minox, and yet, the view is amazing. I know, this review is not about Bushnell Legacy binoculars. If you buy the Minox, you will not want for anything; they are more compact that the Bushnells, undoubtedly more waterproof (up to 3 metres), have closer focus (around 5 feet), a much smoother focus wheel and a really sleek design. Because the eye-relief was a little shorter than I hoped for, I decided I should return them. Eagle Optics was very accommodating.However, in the end, I decided to keep them. Sorry Eagle Optics, for being a nuisance.
You get what you pay for.

My son recommended the Minox BV binocular to me. I have never paid this much before for binoculars, I felt they were all basically the same. Believe me, they are not all the same. The Minox are the best that I have ever look thru. I use them for bird watching and archery. They are excellent for both uses. Would recommend them to everyone interested in getting their monies worth for a very good pair of binoculars. Also, Eagle Optics did a fantastic job of delivery in a very timely manner.
