    Rated 1 out of 5 by from WASTE OF MONEY They do not magnify. They are junk. looking thru them makes the view SMALLER.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice, Light and small For a very inexpensive binocular, these work great. I have not owned many binoculars. I have owned several of these, and they work better than a more expensive pair (by Minolta) that was a bit bigger as well. That said I got a similar style by Pentax which seem quite a bit brighter, don't seem to shake quite a easily (not sure why). And the adjustment for glasses is easier to use. (In fact I replaced my Tascos because the rubber cups no longer were working, and two pairs I got would not stay folded down for glasses. That was a few years ago and those I did not get at B&H. Those are bit bigger and about twice the weight (11oz vs. 6oz). I am doing a bit of birding at least until I see most of the birds around here. I have started carrying a camera that zooms in more than either binocular (both 8x) and of course I can take pictures of the birds to ask folks what they are. So these are not getting much use, but ok when I don't what to take something more bulky. Probably better than opera glasses at a show too. I have yet to use the Pentax in the "field". And was thinking an even brighter pair might be next, but I am impressed with those, and taking my big camera might make more sense than a big pair of binoculars. The Tasco's are usually too dark to read the tree signs at the arboretum, will try the others next.
