From Jeff in the US:
Everyone agrees that these bins are optically great, giving a big, bright, beautiful image. I concur.
There seems to be a variety of opinion about how they feel in the hand, though. For my part, I find them to be very well balanced and comfortable to hold. Again and again, I reach for them rather than other more compact binoculars I own. I will say that the barrels are long and the open hinge design means that they take up a fair amount of space. But in my hands, they feel great.
I think it goes to show that binoculars, like cars or clothes, fit different people differently and feel different to them. If you're interested in bins that will give you a beautiful view, I suggest giving these a try. I really like them a lot.
