Great binoculars, couldn't be happier!
I ordered the last year after some research on line and lots of checking in with other birders. I've been birding for years, but have limited income so making a good decision on this investment was crucial for me.
I'm happy to report I could not be happier with the Rangers.They are one of the best purchases I have ever made and give me hours of pleasure all year round.
I enjoy sharp bright images, even in surprisingly low light conditions. The binoculars are compact, light weight and fit well in the hand. They are well designed with excellent eye relief, which I especially appreciate, as I wear glasses. The focusing mechanism is snug and smooth, a pleasure to use. The 10/42s have been a perfect choice for me. They provide a chance of seeing a little more at the shore as I don't own a scope, while the close range focus allows me to enjoy warblers in wooded areas.
On the basis of my experience with the Ranger, I have recommended these as well as the the Shrike binoculars to new birders and some old hands as well.
Very happy with your product. Thank you!!
