Well I have had a pair of these excellent mid-priced binoculars for nearly four years now and I concur with everything the company blurb says below, having experienced total satisfaction with them in the field hunting. Not possessing perfect vision, particularly in poor light, thay greatly aid me in spotting and distinguishing features and game animals at critical times, whether I am wearing prescription glasses or not.¬† In fact, friends who are stern optics critics have looked through mine and do double takes, being instantly impressed with their brightness, clarity and ergonomics.

That conveys Vortex’s confidence in their products. By the way Vortex products are distributed in Australia by Extravision in Brisbane.
