Good Binocs for a Good Price I searched all over the ‘net for reviews of this binocular, but could find nothing, so I decided to take a chance, get the Carson 10X42s and review them myself. Here’s what I found…

Mighty good deal for the money. I’ve got to say I’m really pleased with my new Carson 8 x 42 close focus binoculars….easily the best binoculars I’ve seen for less than a hundred dollars.They’re good looking, shock resistant, water-proof, have a good strap, a decent case…are easy to focus….very decent, well-made birding binos. I’d rate the view through them as almost as good as my Nikon Monarchs…a pair I really loved…but that were stolen…but, the Carson binoculars cost about a third as much.

Trailmaker says:

OK for occasional use I owned these for over a year and a half and got them for $68. They are just shy of enough eye relief for the glasses I wore. I now have new glasses and they don’t meet the eye relief I need now. I don’t remember them getting knocked into anything but I recently noticed the whole left eyepiece (not eyecup) was crooked. I thought it was just a pressed fit so I tried to straighten it and it came right off. I realized that it’s a screw on and it’s made of plastic. I screwed it back on but it was stripped so I had to secure it with tape. I’m glad I didn’t pay more for these since they just have rubber lamination on a plastic body and now the rubber layer is just starting to separate from the body. I use them a lot for hiking. I really like the 6′ near focus since I do a lot of butterfly watching and the optics are pretty good for this price range. Spending more to get a better built pair would be worth it if you intend to get a lot of use out of binocs which is what I have to do now but…
