These are good binocs for the price. I'm a beginning birder, not knowing much about optics, so I wasn't willing to drop a lot of $$ on some binocs sight unseen. Glad to say, I am happy with my purchase. They have good close range focus, as well as decent far vision. The little side black pcs. are coming unglued, but can easily be crazy glued back in place, not a huge deal, but a drag. You will definitely want to get a thicker strap for neck comfort. Overall, a good buy.
We needed something to use during hikes and football games. The binoculars we received are not usable, the right lens would not focus at all. Both of my boys and I tried them and could not use them due to the inability to focus. Unfortunately, these will be returned.
