From Justin in S. Carolina:
These are my first 'pro' bins, although I've used a number of different brands. For the price these are great for general birding. Images are quite sharp, even in low-light conditions. I debated getting these of the Nikon Monarchs. In side-by-side comparisons, they are quite similar, but the no questions asked lifetime guarantee of the Eagle Optics clinched it for me. I plan to buy a second one for my wife!
