RSPB 8x50 HD Binoculars

I've had my RSPB 8x50 HD Binoculars for about 2 years. Has anyone else had experience of using them and how do they find them. I've been very pleased since I bought mine.
Ian.

There seems to be very little in the way of reviews on the RSPB HD models. I had wanted to buy the 8x32 HD, but this had been discontinued. I could not find one used, so when a chance came to buy the 8x36HD used "as new", I took it.
How do you find the view of the 8x50, is there a yellow/warm colour to the view as in the 8x36?

It is an excellent model for the price and I've found along with my RSPB Scope the sight of the birds is clear and sharp.

I have always found that RSPB bins are very good value for money and considerably less costly than the well known "top" brands.

Tried these today and liked them. However, I expected them to be brighter with a 50mm objective. I must say, my 8x45 Chinese porro prism outperformed them - even on a dull day like today.
