Comments about Vixen Vixen 16 x 80 BCF, Giant Water Proof Porro Prism Binocular with 4.3 Degree Angle of View.:

This is a correction to the close focus witch is 42ft not 20ft. This is still closer than other binoculars in this size.

Comments about Vixen Vixen 16 x 80 BCF, Giant Water Proof Porro Prism Binocular with 4.3 Degree Angle of View.:

These binoculars are sharp in 80% of the field of view. Not fully multicoated, and only single coated prisms. There was no noticeable flare detected thanks to the pull out rubber lens hoods, that are sloppy but do the job well. I noticed a little slop in the mounting shaft too, but it didn't effect the viewing. These binoculars work well on even a small tripod. I like the 20ft. close focusing, and I love the hard case. Even with all the little manufacturing short-cuts, the images are by far much better than any of the 15X70 made in China binoculars that I have. This is a very nice made in Japan binocular deal.
