Purchased for $25 off the shelf in Wal-mart then spent the afternoon using them at Torrey Pines State Park. Three of us used them frequently for watching large and small birds, boats, cars, people, planes, and of course, the spectacular vistas. All of us agreed they worked very well. The day may not come that I spend ten times that amount on a set of binocs--I've never spent more than $50--but for general use, I can't imagine them to be too much better. Some corners had to be cut, I know, yet it doesn't cut into the enjoyment of using them. Hope they last.
Leiana, age 10, easily "captured" pelicans flying by, though it should theoretically be harder to do so with higher power and a larger objective lens size. The Wide Angle lens design probably has something to do with that by increasing the FOV. A larger lens than 50mm and your subject will probably start to "dance". Then you'll need a tripod.
Now out to try viewing the nearly full moon with them...
