I have personally used this same model for birding in the mid-western US and find it to be excellent in all respects. These are extremely easy to use with glasses and are preferred to my Nikon and Leitz optics of similar focal length. I’ve also supplied a large number of these to professional birders, ornithologists, geologists and globe travelers…..all have been impressed with the quality especially at this price point.
The 50mm objective allows for a lot of light to enter thus providing a brighter image in low light. Great for birds, surveillance, marine use or stars!
