The binoculars were just whatI was looking for, a good product at a good price. I was originally looking for the Nikon Monarch 5 10 x 42but as these were not in stock I chose the 12 x 42 - a good decision. Very pleased with the binoculars and equally so with the speed of delivery to my home. It is great when one orders something and the follow up is almost instant. Well done.
