I tried and returned four other mid-range 12x50 binoculars, but these are keepers. They are really quite remarkable for the price (and Adorama got them to me promptly with free shipping). The 9 ft. close focus is wonderful for butterflies. The focus wheel, though not ideally located in relationship to the grip, is smooth and well damped. And the optics are excellent, sharp, good color, if a bit low on contrast compared to ED glass. The neck strap is good enough to be a keeper too. Minor cons: There is some CA (purple or green fringing) on sharp-edged, back-lighted forms. This is only noticed on man-made forms like buildings, not a problem at all for birding. The eyecup adjustments have no detents, so you must pay attention to balance settings on both barrels. I think I might grow to like this arrangement better than detents. The case is contour fitted but lacks any real padding. I will use a padded one. All-in-all these are an excellent value, and you can't beat the warranty.
