    Vanguard MZ-82425C reviews

    MZ 8-24x25 Monocular is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 5.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Clear image, small package Pros: Clear image, easy to use, very compact and pocketable, you can have it with you anywhere. Cons: This product is good, but in case you have never used a monocular before, you might want to know the following. Being a monocular instead of a binocular, it is harder to hold steady. That is never good, but in particular it may make the higher magnification range useless to you unless you have a well braced and very steady hand. In any case, the brain does a better job of image processing with input from two eyes than with one, so viewing with a monocular is just not as good as using binoculars. Conclusion: I wrote the Cons section in case you are new to monoculars -- these cons are true of all monoculars, not specific to this one. If you are willing to trade that off in order to have something so much more conveniently sized than binoculars of the same caliber that you might have it with you all the time anywhere, this specific model is easy to use and presents a clear image. If you are going places where compact binoculars will not be inconvenient, you will definitely get a better viewing experience from binoculars than from an otherwise similar monocular.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Vanguard 8-24-Monocular Works well, and good for close work. THe slide from close to distance could be a bit firmer. Very clear with good light value.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Mediocre at best. The variable zoom simply affects how much light is seen. Would be more useful for it to change the FOV instead.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Scope This product is amazing. Very rugged and has a nice weight to it. Sometimes it can be hard to hold it steady though.
