Shrewsbury GB
It is a handy size and weight, so I am happy to take with me on all my walks.
I find I can focus quite quickly, which is just what I wanted. Good value for money.

Bingham, Notts. GB A very satisfied customer.
It matches my Opticron binoculars for quality but is easier to pack in a jacket pocket when going for countryside walk. Excellent early Christmas prezzy!
The focusing ring is a little stiff but will probably ease off with more use.

Salisbury GB I love the countryside.
So easy to use and easy to carry or pop in your pocket. Certainly lived up to my expectations for bird watching.
Wish the lanyard could be lengthened as I like to carry it across my body rather than around my neck. I have fitted my own strap so easily remedied. It wouldn’t put me off buying it. I love it!
