Brilliant, more please..
A rather long & comprehensive review of many binoculars, greatly appreciated. Have searched YouTube on several occasions & not come across a review where a potential buyer got a lot of info. on what to look for in a good pair of binos. So congrats on attempting this not so easy task. I thought you compared & contrasted all the competing binos rather well. This was the class of binos I settled on for birding (primarily) but also great for quality images when travelling. I managed to check out the M7’s in the shops & thought they were a quality pair though not able to view them outdoors. Because I wear glasses I needed a long eye relief as possible & so I settled on the GPO’s Evolve 3×32’s. Not had a chance to test them out in the field yet but hope they’re at least the equal of the M7’s. Look forward to your future reviews.
After watching this Review, I went and purchased the Nikon Monarch 7. Boy, what a disappointment. I could never get the Binoculars to adjust properly without seeing the dreaded black flashes on both sides while viewing. I tried adjusting the eye cups, diopter, etc.. never worked. I know you said it took you quite a while to get them to properly adjust. Well, this is a flaw. One should not need to fine tune these to get an impossible, ( in my situation), proper adjustment. Back they go. And even if I ever did get them adjusted, it would be hard to let anyone else use these I fear that I need to go through the process all over again. No thanks.
