Quality product

Happy with these binoculars, image produced is bright and clear, and is exactly as advertised. Delivery time was reasonable.

Believe the hype

The Athlon Midas G2 8x42 is a good as so many users and reviewers have said and then some. The brightness, contrast, clarity, wide FOV and edge sharpness is comparable to binos costing 2-3 times more. I wasn't expecting it to be that good but it is.

Elizabeth C.R.
Excellent binoculars. Small accessory problems.

Thanks for the invitation for feedback. The binoculars are superb. I've been using them to watch birds, including a large group of about 1,800 tundra swans migrating through southern Ontario. The binoculars provide me with a clear, bright, finely detailed image of whatever I am viewing. I do have two concerns about the accessories. First, one of the plastic clips on the carrying case that holds the carrying strap has already broken. Meanwhile, the end loop on the soft plastic cover for the eye-pieces already broke. While these are minor problems, they are disappointing, having occurred within just a few weeks and after no apparent stress in how they were used. That said I would not hesitate to recommend these binoculars to friends. All the better if you could address the two glitches. all the best. John Roe
