I have them in my hands today. The views are nice and wide, that's for sure, and with less barrel distortion than I thought there would be around the edge. A pretty big sweet spot. The rubber eyecups are still quite pliable. Very solid binocular, and the focus is precise. The view seems pretty bright. I like that they have a tripod socket on the bottom. The glass appears to be flawless, with no marks or rubbing off of the coatings. A flashlight into the objectives show absolutely no dust or anything else that shouldn't be there. I'd say they could almost pass for new.
