Canon's third generation 12x36 IS III Image Stabilized Binoculars feature the proprietary IS system adapted from the lens systems to create this compact optic that compensates for hand-shake to make them ideal for a long day of bird or nature-watching and sporting events. Utilizing Vari-Angle prisms placed between the front lens and the main prism, when the internal gyro sensors vertical or horizontal detect movement they direct the prisms to compensate and correct for external the shaking to produce smoother views and panning. A microcomputer, outfitted with proprietary algorithms, enhances IS operation, aids shorter startup times, and enable more efficient energy consumption.

Beyond the image stabilization performance are optical features that improve image overall image quality. This begins with Canon's anti-reflection Super Spectra multicoatings to reduce light loss and improve image contrast. Next, they employ a Porro prism optical path that provides a rich depth of field to enable users to better judge distance between objects and a comfortable long 14.5mm eye relief. A doublet field-flattener corrects spherical aberration for distortion-free views, especially at the edges, and wide angle 60° apparent angle of view deliver a truly immersive observational experience. The binoculars run on two included and readily available AA batteries that will power the binoculars for up to nine hours at 77°F. Designed for portability and ease-of-use, they measures in with a compact length of 6.9" and weighs just over 23 oz.

question

I saw the Q&A about the technical differences between this and the previous version. But what does this mean in terms of image quality? Will the view through the III actually look better than through the II? Will an ordinary user (me) really be able to notice a difference? How much of a difference? Many thanks.
Asked by: GeorgeE
It's a small difference. There is just newer coatings on the lens. In low light settings you also might see a brightness difference to some extent.

I have tried the 10x30s and I can focus them without my glasses for my very near sided eyes. Can I expec the same with the 12x36es?
Asked by: Greg
They both has the same 14.5mm eye relief and +3 to -3 diopter so the focusing is the same.
