Love these bins!
I've had my Zeiss Terra ED 8x42 Binocular for over a year now and I still love them as much today as I did the day they arrived from EO.
They are a tad heavier than I'd like, but in return for the weight, the optics are amazing. The light gathering capability and the tight focus means that I can find a bird in no time at all. You can't beat these for the money.
Everyone who looks thru them is quite smitten. Only one negative... the little Zeiss "designer" label fell off early on, but I look at that as almost a plus. Without the label the bins don't scream "STEAL ME!"
