Carson JK-042 reviews

10x42 JK Close-Up Binocular is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 1.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent Binoculars These give a very nice, immersive view. They're sharp, bright, and reasonably contrasty. They get four stars rather than five because the adjustable right eyepiece does not maintain proper focus when the main focus wheel is adjusted to a different distance. It must be readjusted each time. I don't consider this a deal breaker, but some might. The view thru these is quite nice; better than I expected for the price. Collimation in my sample was very good; these feel good in the hands, and are lightweight.
