Terrific optics

 

It's amazing that it's possible to buy such binoculars so cheaply. Images are bright, contrasty, and clear. My only criticism is that the first pair I received soon busted loose a prism. This was really an appalling lapse in quality control. However,...

Great optics

In first pair I purchased a prism soon broke loose

Super optics

 

I'll match the Swift 820 ED's against any glass that is out there for optical quality.

Optical quality, field of view, relative price, weight, and rubber armor

Fittings are cheesy and waterproofing yet to be tested

Superb optics, waterproof, reasonable price

Consumer review by:

A superb pair of binoculars

 

First of all I have the non-ED, "extra dispersal" version of this binocular. I have had my Swift Audubon 820 for over 3 years and have been very pleased with it. I work as a wildlife biologist and I take it everywhere. They work well in all kinds of...

Super features and reasonable priced

Not as compact as a roof prism
