From Rick in MD:
I returned a pair of these, they work fine in low contrast situations, like diffused sunlight in the trees. They are sharp enough and, of course, there is the limitation of the 28 mm objective lens. They're light and well made.
But two problems: first, they have the problem that usually occurs in lower-end binoculars; that is, I could never quite get the diopter adjustment correct so that both eyes were equally sharp. I have noticed this usually is not a problem on more expensive binoculars.
But the biggest problem is the lens flare alluded to in the other reviews. Point these binoculars anywhere near the light or at right angles to the sun and the lens flare is extreme, making the view become very milky-looking. Another reason to buy binoculars with fully coated lenses. It was for this reason that I returned them, there was just way too much lens flare.
If you never pointed them anywhere near the sun, like for backyard birding under the trees, you'll be okay an
d probably never notice the flare. But otherwise, watch out.
