12x56 Nature DX Binocular is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 12.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Really wanted to love these, but sent them back Only my second pair of binoculars in 15 years and my last pair were/are 8x25's - also sub $$ and a joy to use. Maybe this is typical of this price range, however I was hoping for the same kind of experience with these 12x56 that I had with a much smaller pair. The color fringing (CA) is fairly strong across the frame (in the pair I received, only had one to sample, your mileage may vary). Clear focus over about 70% of the view. I was hoping to use for Astronomy, with periodic daytime use, but the purple color fringing was very distracting.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great value! I bought these for birding into the rainy/cloudy Pacific Northwest. They have superior light gathering capability and the 12x magnification is very handy for medium to long range viewing. I am very pleased with my purchase. One downside is the significant weight of these binoculars. People with low upper body strength should be careful when considering these.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great value I'm a birdwatcher in the cloudy Northwest and just bought these for especially overcast days. The large 56 mm lenses gather a large amount of light with very little purple fringing. They feel sturdy and the focus knob works smoothly. They are heavier than my 12x50 binoculars but I was expecting that. People with low upper body strength should think carefully before buying these.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great clarity I have only used these twice so far, once for terrestrial viewing and once for looking at the moon. On both occasions I was impressed with the clarity. These binoculars are solidly put together and feel very durable. As other commenters have stated, they are a little on the heavy side but that does not bother me at all. I prefer to have the weight and the solid feel. Overall, these are exactly what I wanted when I purchased them. I will be testing them further during whale watching season and when I get to a dark sky site.
