Bought to supplement/replace Leica 8x32 BN. The GPO HD 8x42 bins are excellent, every bit as good as the Leicas but brighter; tremendous value for money. Stealth Birding service was first class, highly recommended!
I wanted a specific pair of binoculars for birdwatching to accompany a pair of 10x25 pocket sized Leica’s I already have. Having done a lot of research I decided to go with these and they are absolutely fantastic. This, together with the brilliant service provided by Stealth Birding is the reason why I would strongly recommend the product and Company. 5 stars.... thank you very much.
As an oversees customer the advice, guidance order and delivery process went well, albeit in the COVID crisis. I selected a pair of HD lenses, being an avid photographer the quality of the lenses is key.
I am more than happy with the binoculars, which are great for both short and long distance. As I live on the side of a valley looking 120 kM towards the pyrenees with distant views, I now have identified new points of interest on the horizon. Great for short and long distances. I enjoyed looking at a big fat green lizard fo 20 minutes last week from 2m away. Also enjoing the close ups of all the bird life around my house, walks and cycle rides.
The clarity of the lenses is quite impressive, and i am very happy with the purchase.
My only point of disapointment is in the case which on the first use one of the straps attachment broke loose. I am sure that will get sorted with the excellent customer service i got so far.
