What is the considered opinion on these binos? I recently checked up on reviews of these elsewhere and came across a web site called opticsoasis. Link below


which did a sort of forensic review of these binos.

It appears there are about 5 variants of this same model!! Amazon are offering them for £45 free delivery, except I don't use them on principle now. They are getting too powerful and don't treat their workers very well I understand.

Would be interested in your comments

Perhaps Opticsoasis has a business relationship with Eyeskey/Amazon for optic review purposes.

You can see the recent thread about Styrka going out of business for some discussion of the weird world of cheap Chinese binocular clone pop-up companies. I would not consider these at all unless you needed something decent for super cheap and you don't care if they break in 1-2 years and the company no longer exists to honor the warranty.

You can do a lot better, there are plenty of decent, cheap binoculars from good companies like Vortex, Celestron, etc

Interesting replies Thank-you. I replied to an ad on Facebook. They wanted £100 for an unused Eyeskey 8x40 HD. When I pointed out that Amazon are selling these for £45 they immediately reduced price to £40!!
