Went all in on Zeiss this year. From spotting scope, rifle scope and 15x56 binoculars. Been a good choice across the board. I really like to glass from a tripod. Regardless if it's from my 10 power or 15 power optics. I noticed that these binoculars seemed a little lighter than my previous 15 power binoculars. Which I really like to save the weight. Glass is good and I never felt much eye fatigue. The one personal draw back I noticed was the eye cups seemed to be flimsy. I really wished the eyecups where more rigid and firm. Thats why this review is titled 4 stars instead of 5 stars. Overall a good product. Also the tripod base and stud which is included is awesome that you don't have to purchase it separately.
