Don't waste you money on the H20! They are no good. No good.

That does seem to be a rather too succinct and unsubstantiated comment. I don't have personal experience but do remember that the H2O bins were highly reviewed when they came out, especially for the lowish price.

Scampo, I don't want to be impolite, but those things stink. I'll admit the low price is nice, that's why I bought mine, but...

You ought to know then - but really, a bit of objectivity is more helpful, don't you think? What aspects are so poor - fov, sharpness, clarity, brighgtness? They were reviewed highly about three years back but now seem discontinued over here.

The view was very dark, but the clarity was probably the main poor bit of the 'view'.

I tried out some expensive Nikon 10x42 binoculars (Monarchs if I remember right) that had darker image than my Bushnell 10x42 binocs. The clarity isn't the best, but they are still very good for the price.

I bought a pair of Bushnell 10 x 42 roofs on holls (natureviews) For my first pair of propper bins I can't fault them - used them all the time. Compared to my old Chinese panda 8 x 30's they are amazing
