From Cindy L. in Republic of Panama:
I expected a lot from the because of the very high price and the fact that Zeiss built them "from scratch" as binoculars designed specifically for birders and wildlife observers.
I am not disappointed - they are better than I expected. The focus knob really does have a buttery-smooth action and can be used with fingers in their natural position. I have very small hands, and the weight is not a problem due to the perfect balance of the bins when held up to the eyes. The resolution, the field of view - it's all spectacular.
I can't think of a single negative comment or complaint.
