Carson JK-842 reviews

8x42 JK Close-Up Binocular is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 2.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from great affordable binocs Recommended by sales rep at B&H. I really enjoy the optics and find that they allow my narrow and deep set eyes to use them very well. The eye relief is a long 22 mm. They can focus close up (5ft), which can be useful for backyard birding. No word on reliability yet, but so far so good.
