We tested the Vegas 10×52 out in the British Virgin Islands and were surprised by the good quality of these binoculars. We were most surprised by the clarity of images during very little daylight.
The diopter scale is located conveniently at the bottom side of the right eyepiece with plus and minus markings. This is our preferred location making it easy to adjust when using the neck strap and using in rough waters.
We found the optical acuity to be fairly good and was consistent viewing with or without glasses. It did take a little getting use to on the waters to get a good field of view.
The central focus knob is nice and chunky allowing for ease of use and adjusting.
The objective lens caps come off and are not attached to the center hinge for security. I don’t like this feature as it makes it easy to lose the caps. The ocular lens caps are made from a rubber membrane and are connected to the neck strap. We would like to see the objective lens caps connected too.
Good optical performance performing well in the evening and early morning hours make this a good marine binocular option for sailors, boaters, and fishermen. For a reasonable price and lifetime warranty we mark this one as a buy. The customer service at Levenhuk was also good.
