Of all the models within the Solaris series, this 10x50mm model is probably the most versatile:
With their reasonably powerful 10x magnification, you are able to view objects in greater detail even when at longer distances.
Whilst the ample 50mm objectives give these binoculars the potential to capture more light than those using smaller lenses like your standard 10x42mm binocular. This in combination with the 10x50 arrangement produces an adequate 5mm exit pupil, which may not be quite as large as the 7x50 Solaris, but it still ensures that your eyes are able to perceive a bright image even in low light when your pupils are dilated.
So as you can see this combination makes this 10x50 Solaris a very versatile instrument and ideal for activities like general use, wildlife observation, hunting and even some birding in wide open areas like in the hills or at the coast.
Being tripod adaptable also makes them perfectly suited for use in hides where you may need to keep the view trained on a specific location for long periods all the while maintaining a perfectly shake-free image.
The 17mm of eye relief on this binocular is also generally considered to be enough for eyeglass wearers to achieve a full image without dark rings on the edges of the view.
With a 5-meter minimum focusing distance, these Yukon Solaris 10x50 binoculars are not recommended for very close range uses like the study of butterflies or other insects.
