Great binocular for the price
This is the third binocular that I have purchased from Eagle Optics, and I also bought a spotting scope. I always recommend EO to my summer ornithology students because they will get great optics at affordable prices for students, and, from experience, they really stand by that lifetime warranty.
I really like the . I compared it with my Nikon Monarch and the EO Ranger that I have, and it were sharper, brighter, more comfortable to hold, and quicker to focus.
I guess I never had problems with the diopter adjustment moving on any binocular since my first bargain pair 46 years ago, but the locking diopter works especially well on the Golden Eagle. Of minor importance, the accessories and the case with an inside pocket were welcomed.
With my visual acuity failing as I get older, I am looking to many years of birding with these. I would hope that the binoculars that sell for twice this amount are twice as good in the situations where we bird 95 percent of the time. I think these are excellent optics at a great price.
