This item in its various brandings is notorious as a useless piece of junk. No binocular can produce a decent image or be collimated at these magnifications. Buying these would be like flushing money down the toilet.

If you want a chuckle here's a recent thread from Cloudy Nights Binocular Forum on a variant of this binocular:

Anamutha,
There are no good super zoom binoculars. They are all bad! You will not find anyone here who will recommend that you buy a zoom binocular. Even the Nikon 7/15 x 35 which might be the best of a bad bunch. They all are dim, have narrow fields of view and break down very easily. Look for a nice 7 x 35 or 8 x 40. Nikon makes both at very reasonable prices.

If you need something with zoom for birding, get a spotting scope. The binoculars listed here are junk.

I think you should go ahead and order one of those and report back on how you like them,
just make sure they have a return policy.

Take the Second one: Military 140x Zoom Binoculars to Fort Hood. That's in Texas where you are. Ask them what they think of it.

If you absolutely must test a zoom, and if I were forced to do the same, this is the only one I would look at. Get tripod mount of some sort.

well, maybe not....one review includes While on 22x they are so blurry I can't use this setting, the adjustments won't allow it

By the way, your English was much better then. What "accent" are you using in Canada?

These are probably one of the best, for zoom, binoculars but are very expensive

Don't waste your money on the zoom binoculars you have link to and if you need higher power pay more and get this.

I thought he was a spammer but I checked out his posts and they seemed reasonable.

His previous posts use perfect English grammar and syntax. Not this "just off the boat" garble he has going on here. Let me get the straw outta my hair!

I'm waiting for the pocketable 10-400 150 Super Mega Zoom.

(Very few zoom binoculars are worth the price, no matter how cheap.)
