I bought this binocular in February 2008 from a local nature store. I say, this is a good value for money birding optics. During a bird guiding trip in Fraser's Hill on the same month, it was drizzling a little bit and I tested it on the field. Not much of an issue.

The only thing which I would like to get from this product is the front cap to cover the objective lens when not in used although it comes together with a carrying bag.

* I lost the cap for the exit pupil....*sigh*
