Good but expensive By
I cannot write anything bad about the optics or build quality of these binoculars. The only major flaw is the price which was high for me, but I am still not regretting the decision to order it.

Best for the money By
I compared these binoculars with three best premium binoculars of similar configuration from Leica, Swarovski and Zeiss. I was not able to find any significant optical difference in them and now I am a proud owner of SLC 8x42. :)
