Safari 8x42 is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 2.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product !! I compared them to 4 other well known brands, Nikon Prostaff 7s, celestron Trailseeker, Vortex Diamondback, and Vaguard Spirit ED, all in 8x42. all had similar tech specs and boasted similar features, and all were similarly priced. when I compared the individual aspects of each (clarity, brightness, comfort, ease of operation, likely durability, etc.) Steiner was the overall winner in my opinion. simply put - Steiner beat them all. a truly great investment ! and with Heritage Warranty, my grandson will be getting a fine optic he can pass on to his grandson.
