About Roof Prism Binoculars:
The prism system of a binocular reduces the size needed to contain a long optical path and turns what would be an upside-down image right-side-up. In roof prism binoculars, the prisms overlap closely, allowing the objective lenses to line up directly with the eyepiece. The result is a slim, streamlined shape in which the lenses and prisms are in a straight line. Roof prism binoculars are less bulky and more rugged than an equivalent porro model.

Very Impressed I bought these without much information but am VERY PLEASED.Having worn glasses with prisms since age 6 I’ve always had problems seeing through binoculars. These work GREAT with my specs. I’m particularly impressed with the zoom feature. Binoculars I’ve had in the past could go out of focus just by pushing them into my eyes. These have internal focus so pressure against your face won’t change the focus.Very sturdy; strong focus knob; nice rubber grips on side. These are a winner for me. Thanks Bushnell.

Very good value These are tough, well made binoculars for the money. I find the loss of brightness on full zoom is very acceptable, and the zoom lever very easy to use. Field of view at 8 power is not great, but this is inevitable in a zoom binocular. The close focus is extremely useful, but closer than about ten feet you’ll end up using them as a monocular, as images do not overlap sufficiently. For the ultimate in close focus binoculars I would suggest Pentax Papilio, designed for full binocular use as close as 18 inches.

K. Anderson says:

Made for people with eyes VERY close together Bushnell calls this “interpupillary distance” (the measurement from one pupil to the other). These binoculars offer a very short distance between pupils. If you are a woman or a kid this will probably work for you. There is a small adjustment to align the eyepieces with your eyes, but it is very finite and favores those with those eyes closer together. I worked with the binoc for a while but there is a “stop” that only allows the adjustment to go so wide.OK, I am no Marty Feldmen and have what I would consider “average” interpupillay distance, but could NOT get these binocs to adjust to fit my eyes. So, a generous 3* fof this product as with one eye the focus and zoom seemed to work well.For what it is worth.Ken
