In fact, I was utterly surprised when I adjusted these is. Everything came quickly into focus and I could read signs far out there that I could not read with other bigger more expensive ones. I’m not saying you can’t find anything better…What I am saying that in this price range, I’ve not seen anything as fast focusing and clear as these. Another thing to think about is the compact size. First of all, why do people usually buy small binoculars? Because they are going to a sporting event or concert and they want something light and small. Even Camping, Hiking, or Hunting, size and weight are important to keep fairly small. If it’s too big it may get left at home. When you are looking through these binoculars, 1000 feet will seem like you are looking from only 126 feet away with a 7.2 degree field of view….So it will bring whatever you want to see up nice and close.
