Pros: Easy to hold still, Sharp image, wide field, 50mm for ease of use?
Cons: Stiff focussing & free play, closest focus is about 30ft

The Landscouts may be running out so I got both 10x50 and 7x35. I find longer reach better for the individual bird, but to me both versions seem nice and sharp for the price with their very wide angles and sweet spots, waterproofing, and no CA.

The downsides seem to be the minimum 30ft/12ft close focus and, both versions having the same bodies, variably heavy and lumpy focussing action and free play with the 10x50 so eventually they went back (but just firm and smooth with the 7x35 which I kept). The rainguard, strap, and bag are good but the individual plastic objective-cover inserts were too loose and easily fell out, so I got some rubbery caps with loops to replace them.

Handling is great. There is plenty to hold on to, and the weight definitely gives better steadiness at 10x compared to roofs. It's less of a problem at a distance too, and sitting down helps. Also maybe the 5mm exit pupil makes the eyepieces easier to line up than with the usual 4mm.
