8x42 Nature DX Binocular is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 60.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from amazing budget binoculars These were an upgrade from some inexpensive pair of bushnell 10x50s. Wow! What an improvement! Despite minor dispersion around the image these produce an incredible view for the price. The field of view is substantial at 7.4 and the min focal distance of 6 feet makes birding at short ranges exciting. Focusing in on a bird that's body length away is quite stunning. I'd recommend these 100% to any serious birder on a budget. I'm also a glasses wearer and these are a pleasure to use even with my specs on. Check the review of these of Cornell Lab of Ornithology, too. You won't be disappointed with these 'nocs!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent binoculars, even if they cost double the price! This is my first pair of upgraded binoculars beyond the 'cheapo' discount store type and I have to say I love them! I purchased them based on the suggestion of the Audubon Society for binoculars in their price class and have been completely happy with them. They are excellently constructed, the optics are outstanding, they focus quickly and easily, and just feel great in my hands. A friend that has a more expensive pair and when he checked these out stated they were superior to his. I've already ordered the 10x42 version to have in our other vehicle and to offer a different magnification for different viewing purposes. I highly recommend them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great binocular for the money! I recently purchased these binoculars based on many positive online reviews. I am really impressed with them due to the features offered, crystal clear optics, lightweight design and the great sale price. Focusing is just right - not to tight or too loose. Good long eye relief for eyeglass wearers and really close focus just add to the package. They are well-balanced in your hands for long periods of use and appear to be very well built. On top of that I got two day expedited free shipping from B&H!All in all I am very pleased with these Celestron bino's and hope to have them for many years to come.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Value for the Money I was looking for an inexpensive pair of binoculars for my kids, but I still wanted a pair with decent quality, and I have to say the value for the money is astonishing.� I obviously wasn't expecting the same view that I get through my Zeiss Victory FL's, but I was really blown away that for just over 100 bucks, you can get this type of build quality and optical performance.� Throw in the fact that they are� light-weight compared to others in their class, and that they are waterproof and nitrogen filled, and you couldn't ask for more.� Color rendition is solid, and edge sharpness is on par with binoculars costing two to three times as much.� I just don't think you can beat the value for the money.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent Binocular Value I have a pair of Swarovski binoculars that cost 10x what these did, but I bought these to have a second pair for an African safari and was not disappointed. I honestly preferred the Celestron binoculars because they had a wider field of vision, a slightly larger image, and were just as clear and easy to use.Since then, I have used them for several football games and can literally see the players expressions and can keep track of the ball whatever crazy play they may run.Fantastic binoculars for the money!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Best bird watching for the price Mainly used for bird watching on the front porch, they are rugged and we leave them out unless we expect heavy weather. At this price we allow the grandchildren to use them too. My wife says the size is perfect and they fit her hand and come to the eye easily. We have spent more for lesser quality.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Doesn't disappoint! I'm a novice birder and a birding friend told me about these glasses. She's says the group she birds with - and they are very seasoned birders - always recommend these to new group members. I generally have a hard time looking through binoculars, but with these I'm able to focus quickly and easily. The lenses gather a lot of light and focus easily on objects at close range as well as at a distance. And the price can't be beat. These certainly do NOT disappoint!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very satisfied w/ these Bins I had read a review of these from a study at Cornell University and bought them w/o trying them in a store. No problems whatsoever. They feel great in my hands, very smooth focus, no problems with using them while wearing my glasses. They have greatly exceeded my expectations. Additionally they are a fantastic value.
