Sometimes you need a bit more magnification than 8X and more light gathering power than 42-50mm. These 70mm objectives gather almost twice the light as 50 mm ones and at 10x these fine binoculars are still hand holdable. These are great binoculars to use for astronomy or anywhere you need to resolve detail at long range, the lenses are corrected to show a flat field all across the field of view. The only downside is that they are a bit big and heavy but it's not possible to deliver the same performance with anything smaller and lighter.
I collect binoculars as a hobby and use them a lot as well. I have some top-of-the-line Swarovskis, Leicas, etc. The FMT models are performance-wise fully equal to those 3 times the price brands, they are rugged as well. The only down-side is that they are big and heavy...but have to be considering the lens size. You will not be disappointed with any of the FMT Fuji models...
