I have limited experience of binoculars having only used the 8 x 30 Bausch and Lomb I ‘acquired’ as a soldier in 1955! But things change, and having bought GPO Passion, found out just how much they change!
I’m very impressed with my purchase.
Your service was not bad either!
Excellent Binoculars. I am very pleased with the quality of the optics and the build construction.
Given that my main reason for my purchase was casual use on country walks, the jury is still out on the suitability of the straps and case. The main case is a hard shell, which is excellent for carrying the binoculars in my rucksack, but less than ideal for wearing round my neck (especially with a thin strap). The free gift harness that was also supplied requires you to rethread all the straps on the binoculars from the decent strap provided to the straps of the harness. I am sure that this would be perfect for the dedicated birder, but less so for a casual user like myself. I guess it will take several more country walks until I find the best configuration for me. Having said all that. these are only minor niggles, based on the way I envisage using the product, and I am still very happy with my purchase.
Excellent service throughout and the binoculars we bought are superb, arrived quickly really carefully and safely packaged, good communication throughout
