Outfitted with their proprietary Vari-Angle prism electronic image stabilization system, the Canon 15x50 IS All-Weather Image Stabilized Binoculars are an ideal optic for bird and nature watching, marine use, or astronomical use. Their quick-response time and ±0.7° correction angle easily compensates for the common hand-shake that can make viewing through binoculars of this magnification difficult or disorientating. A single-activation button located precisely where the right forefinger naturally rests makes using them easy and allows you to concentrate on viewing without distractions.

For increased usage, the 15x50 IS will work as full-featured binoculars when the image stabilization is not being used, even if the batteries are dead or removed. Optically, they are built with ultralow-dispersion (UD) glass elements and matching doublet field-flatteners, with their Super Spectra anti-reflection coatings to produce bright and clear high-contrast images without distortion across the entire wide field of view. Protecting the optics and electronics is an armored chassis that benefits from ergonomically designed grips, and a standard 1/4"-20 tripod mount socket for an even steadier view. Right-eye dioptric correction, twist-up eyecups, and a wide interpupillary adjustment range rounds out the features of these binoculars that will become your go-to optic for any outdoor activity.

I bought these because my wife has a tremor and wants to do bird identification. They work great! Because of weight, one might not want to carry them a long distance, but that's the only possible concern

E-58 II Lens Caps & Canon 58mm Protector Filters

By Ben
Rated 5 out of 5
Date: 2022-02-10

Besides all the excellent remarks about these fantastic binoculars, I wanted to focus and show you how it looks with two Canon 58mm Protector Filters and with two Canon E-58 II Lens Caps. These filters and caps should have come OEM with these amazing 15x50 binoculars. These filters screw in perfectly, as they are made by Canon and as well as the lens caps. I installed these filters and caps as soon as I opened the original box and took the 15x50s out of its original Canon bag. No dust speckle was left between front element and filter. It is a small investment to protect your large investment, so I highly recommend you to do the same and buy two filters and two lens caps. I also wanted to show you that the Arca-Swiss plate does cover about 5 to 10% of the battery cover, so you will need to remove your Arca-Swiss plate every time you need to replace your batteries. Not a big deal really. Other than that, there's nothing more to add to the other reviewers. It is the best set of IS binoculars on the market for stargazing and long distant animal watching.

These are by far the best binoculars I've owned; got them primarily for stargazing and that's been limited by weather, but looking at the moon using the image stabilizer is pretty amazing! Only knock is that they don't come with lens caps; not sure about that.

Arca who?

By Stephen
Rated 3 out of 5

Mostly good, but two issues. Chromatic aberration results in very noticeable color fringing under some conditions. The other is what I consider a really dumb design flaw. These have a tripod socket, which is a really good idea, but Canon doesn't seem to have thought about how it will be used. Like a lot of photographers I find QR plates of the Arca Swiss sort really convenient, but as near as I can tell there's no such thing as a plate that won't interfere with the battery door, making it impossible to change the batteries without removing the plate (which makes having a quarter or other suitable tool necessary). I can't see any reason that the door couldn't be on the top or perhaps rotated 90 but on the off chance there is there can't be any reason other than a few cents in manufacturing cost that prevents adding another centimeter to the square section that houses the batteries.

BHPhotovideo sent my binoculars a day earlier than excepted. Thanks. These are true binoculars : clear viewing, stabilization works as advertised. I took my binoculars to my local park to watch green head ducks. You could count the feathers on them, imagine super sharp and clear. I would recommend to buy 58mm UV protection filters to avoid scratching the lenses. They are 2lbs heavy, but it is worth it to carry them around. You will love them

Very good

question

I noticed in the reviews submitted by Mr Dave and Mr Bill that they had front objective screw-in hoods on their binoculars. Where can I get a pair of those? They would have to be 58mm for the 15x50 IS binoculars.
Asked by: David
It seems that my original question piqued a lot of interest in this modification for the Canon 15x50 Binox. I kept digging and found the answer right in front of me. As soon as you enter the B&H website, put lens hoods in the Search Box. Then scroll down about 15 items (it may vary from day to day) to Sensei PRO 58mm Aluminum Lens Hood for $9.75. That is exactly what I was looking for. And it is exactly what is pictured in the referenced reviews for the 15x50 IS Canons. It takes two. I will screw a 58mm UV filter in each objective lens, then screw an aluminum lens hood into each filter and top it off with a 62mm lens cap.

question

I noticed in the reviews by Mr Dave and Mr Bill the photos showing screw-in lens hoods. Who makes those and can I order a pair? I have had the 15x50 IS binocs for just over a year and am looking for ways to improve some of its minor shortcomings.
Asked by: David
I use the Sensei hoods my Canon binoculars. I do not have the same model as you, but check your filter size (58mm?) and buy two of the corresponding hoods of the same size and screw them in. My hoods are always on, and occasionally I add polarizers before the hoods when i am on the water. Check these at B&H: https://<a href= http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/1079792-REG/sensei_lhm_58_pro_58mm_aluminum_lens.html target= _blank >www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/1079792-REG/sensei_lhm_58_pro_58mm_aluminum_lens.html</a>

question

I purchased these just pver a year ago and they have been phenomenal. When the button is pushed for stabilization they snap into action and it is amazing. I would also like to use these on a tripod (wouldn't have to use the IS), but wondering what type of binocular adapter is needed. Ordinary binoculars have the threaded hole on a vertical face between the objectives for use with an L bracket. The Canons have the threaded connection on the bottom like a camera. They could be mounted to a swivel head directly, but the adjustment handle would poke me in the cheek. Any suggestions?
Asked by: David
Use a ball head; no adjustment handles!

question

Do any users of the 15x50 Canon IS All Weather know if there are tethered or flip up objective lens caps that fit this? Thanks
Asked by: Joseph G.
I have the 10x52 IS and found a pair of snap on 52mm lens cap that works well. Perhaps you can do the same for the size that fits your objective lenses. I tethered both together with the cord that came with them.
