Rated 1 out of 5 by miss60 Need a steady hand
My husband wanted a new pair of binoculars to replace some really good ones because the casing is damaged and was looking forward to trying these. Very disappointed. The magnification is so great that you lose clarification when looking at an object and it is impossible to focus on a moving object. They have already been sent back.

These are very clear, small and comfortable to use and even compatible to use with my varifocal glasses, not forgetting the valuable rubber fold over casings to lean your glasses against without having to take my glasses off.
Well worth buying ((-;

Rated 5 out of 5 by astronic Excellent purchase!
Love them, they are so light and compact, a great improvement on our large binos which are much heavier.
Have viewed butterflies and birds (static) and even the full moon which was AMAZING!

Cycle a lot and currently carry 10 x 28 binos. They say x10 magnification is the max. for hand held but I have found these x18's to be light and compact although you do need a steady hand and not need to focus on one subject for too long.

Found the field of view to small and I found them not compatible for use with varifocal glasses.

Rated 5 out of 5 by norah65 Excellent binoculars
I am afraid I cannot agree with the previous reviewer. These are compact, lightweight, well made, powerful binoculars and really good value for the price.

I fully agree with the other comments! These binoculars really need a tripod as are useless for hand held use as the magnification is too great for a stabilised image.
Was very disappointed as they looked ideal for carrying around.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Silvergirly Very Disappointing
Focus ring very stiff and difficult to use. Because of the high magnification of these binoculars, they are really difficult to hold steady, therefore it is hard to get anything like a clear image. Not particularly good quality, feel cheap. Useless for bird watching. Therefore, returned to QVC.
