Barska Zoom Binoculars

I just wanted to share my very disappointing experience with these binoculars.

Save your $200 and stay with a good pair of fixed binocs. The big Barska zooms have an extremely poor FOV imo, from a eye pinching pin hole at 25x to a blurred mess at 125x. Light intake is good to about 40x and then it gets dark fast, at 125x it is less than half as bright as at 25x.

Focus was a pain, but can be achieved, that is if you don't mind double vision along with an eye straining headache. Sorry, but these were a real disappointment to me, I expected better from Barska.

I will say this, they are well made, both zoom, and focus controls were smooth and fluid, the tripod mount is adjustable and very stable. Like I said, save your money and get a pair of high power fixed binos.

Optics planet was very prompt and courteous about refunding me the price I paid.
