Canon 12 x 36 IS II Binocular

 

The Canon 12 x 36 IS II Binoculars is an impressive product but it is quite expensive. Its build is solid and the optical performance is very good in day light. Of course the Image Stabilizer is an excellent feature. I would rate it 5 star if the price...

A Revelation!

 

I wasn\'t sure about this technology so,lest I was disappointed, I started at the bottom of the range with the 8 X 25. I was not disappointed - the results were remarkable. And they were still small enough to be carried on your belt. Unfortunately, I...
