Eagle Optics Ranger 10x42 Binocular

From George G. in U.S.:

4/5 Rating

A good buy


Very nice finish on this .  Easy-to-use focus wheel and diopter adjustment.  The eye relief is just sufficient to use with glasses.  Very light and easy to hold steady despite the 10x spec, and I've found that higher power a real advantage in some circumstances.

Strap is comfortable and caps work well. View is very sharp and clear with a large sweet spot.  Minor color fringing on difficult targets, such as bare twigs against a bright cloudy sky.  But no significant chromatic aberration beyond that.

Colors are very true, and I've had a great time identifying birds with them.  Haven't had a chance yet to do any astronomy with them, but I can say these are a big step up from the cheap porros I've been using.
