I'm not a bird watcher, I just wanted a new pair of binoculars for travel and everyday use. I bought some Nikon Sportstar 10x25s in 2010, they're OK and very compact but I wanted something better but still relatively small. Fortunately there are YouTube channels dedicated to this sort of thing, and after watching a few reviews I decided to go for the GPO Passion 10x32.
I'm really happy with these. They feel good, solid build, and I like that one has the option of having the lens caps connected to the body/strap or not (so I don't lose them). They're about three times the price of my old little Nikons; they were 25s of course but I was surprised by the difference in brightness and contrast. I went for green, it's a very dark green and makes a change from the usual black.
Stealth Birding was cheaper (by about £30) than where I first looked and the option of a free gift was nice, so I chose the Eco Beacon bird feeder and took delivery in a couple of days. Excellent. We already had a bird feeder but I wanted another elsewhere.
I said I'm no bird watcher but these are really nice to look through so I've sat in the garden and watched the birds quite often, with a copy of the RSPB's "Pocket Birds" in some form of amateur attempt at identifying them. It's quite relaxing.
It makes me wonder what a £2000 pair of Leica, Zeiss or Swarovski are like. I'll never know, but I do wonder!
Thank you ++ to James and Stealth Birding for the superb and speedy service regarding my recent purchase of GPO Passion ED 10x32 (Green/Black) binoculars.
It's not often that online (or even 'high street') retailers 'go the extra mile', however, James and Stealth Birding are a welcome and notable exception.
Thank you once again for the very professional and personal approach to my purchase. 😀
P.S. The GPO binoculars are excellent!
I bought the Passion ED 8x32's last week off James, thought them to be superb and have just received these equally superb 10x32's. These very compact and lightweight bino's are ideal when that extra reach is needed and whilst the field of view is narrower the optical quality and ease of focusing is exactly the same. In a word, stunning. They are the perfect compliment to the 8x32's, which my wife has decided are 'hers' and their robust, compact yet light weight make them ideal for our daily walks with the dogs. I am delighted with these GPO binoculars, they combine outstanding build quality with genuinely superb optics and are fantastic value for money. Again James provided an exceptional level of service, ordered in the afternoon and delivered to Mid Wales the next morning. Cracking bino's, cracking customer care.
Great company to deal with, best price I could find of reputable dealers, great communication and prompt delivery by the best of the courier companies I’ve dealt with.
Heavier than I was expecting, but the flip side is that they really feel well-engineered, and their image quality is superb! The strap is nice and wide, fortunately, given their weight, but a soft case would have been easier to stuff into a pocket. All in all, I’m very happy with the binoculars, much brighter than my little Nikons.
