    Miraculous! Birdwatching yesterday in amongst the South Australian bush, I could see every detail of the tiny yellow thornbill and follow it easily as it flitted through the trees. Then an easy movement to greater distance as I heard a rufous whistler and caught its brilliant colours as if it was a few feet away only. I am utterly delighted.

    Excellent binoculars, great clarity even in low light. Focussing it sharp and responds beautifully to the very slightest adjustment. I wear glasses and worn while using the binoculars is a pleasure, unlike my older [cheaper] binoculars. I use them for bird watching. The functioning of the lens protectors are well thought out.

    I spent some time researching what would be best for bird watching and appreciated the detailed information I found on the Procular webpage so chose to purchase through them. These are the first pair of binoculars I have purchase and my seasoned bird watching friends were very impressed with my purchase so I am pleased that I have chosen well. Thank you Procular for helping me begin my birdwatching hobby with a good pair that provides clear and bright images and enough range to find and follow birds easily.

    The binoculars are perfect for wearing glasses while bird watching. The clarity and no fuss large lens meant I didnt have to take off my glasses, fiddle with the lens and juggle everything then loose sight of the bird! Excellent!

  7. Colin (verified owner)

    Really great clear optics and easy focus control – pity there isn’t an optional across body harness for the binoculars.


  8. Doug (verified owner)

    Sensational. Clarity is spectacular.


  9. Marion (verified owner)

    Binoculars are great, with absolute clear vision but find it hard to pack them into case with strap attached.


  10. Katie (verified owner)

    Great to view through and comfortable hold


  11. Stuart Sykes (verified owner)

    Light is the key: they are light to carry, they gather a stunning amount of light and the clarity is the best I have ever experienced. I am thrilled with them.

    Theses binos are everything they claim to be. Much better than my old 8 x 24s. They have renewed my love of birding so I’m very pleased with my purchase. Great value, thanks team.


  13. Annette O’Reilly (verified owner)

    After a lot of research and might I say procrastination I finally bought a pair of Carl Zeiss ED 8×10 and absolutely love them. While a long time but still a novice bird watcher these binos have elevated the experience and I am sure I am going to get a lot of use and enjoyment from them. Worth the money and a huge step up in terms of clarity compared to my old faithful pair of Bushnells. Procular provide clear and easy to understand information and brilliant service. Highly recommend.

    I have had a couple of pairs of Pentax binoculars prior to buying these and have birded extensively around the world from Antarctica, to the Amazon, to Africa and the Australian outback. I rate them highly against my friends expensive European binos that I have tried.
    The Zeiss Terra ED 8 x 42 are brighter than my old Pentax binos and are definitely of a better build quality (especially the front eye piece construction).
    The only issues I have found so far are that the focus is a bit slower to dial in (hopefully something I will adapt to over time) and that there is no lock or even detent for the diopter adjustment which means it can be accidentally knocked. I have put some liquid paper in the dial wheel so I can see at a glance if it is in the correct location. Other than this I am very happy with my new binoculars and the advice provided by Procular during the selection process.

    I have had just one chance to go down to the beach (Ashburton river mouth, SI, NZ) -the information that led me to purchase this particular set is entirely accurate. We have amazing sea birds at the beach including the endangered black-billed gull – the viewing was amazing.

    I took these bird watching in Hawaii. They were great. Lightweight, easy to focus, great optics for those tiny birds. Very happy.

    Great Binoculars! I have been both bird watching and whale watching with them. No problem with the lens covers falling off. Very happy.


  21. Charles

    Great Binoculars!

    Only criticism is that front lens covers fall out too easily


  22. Ryan

    I have used several brands and types of optics over the years, these ones I am quite pleased with. I am HUGE into outdoors, as I spend most of my spare time fishing, bird watching, and other activities. I bought these optics specifically for bird watching, and they have far surpassed my expectations. They are of excellent quality, especially for the price point!
