I live at the edge of a conservation area and have always loved observing wildlife. I have been frustrated finding a good pair of binoculars for a decent price. These are the exception.

After reading all the reviews I could find, I decided to order a pair of Zhumell 10x42 Short Barrel binoculars. I was not disappointed. The clarity is very good, they have excellent three dimensional depth of field, and being short barreled, are easy to keep steady, something of a concern with a 10X lens.

I am very fussy when it comes to chromatic aberration and have returned some binoculars because of it. I am pleased to say that CA is almost undetectable in high contrast situations. The only other optical flaw is minor glare when observing at a right angle to the sun. The glare is blue and green, and easy to ignore. Fortunately, it is limited to only a few degrees and not really a big problem.

Mechanically, they feel very solid, the eye cups adjust easily, and the focus is easy to control.

All in all, I am very happy with these binoculars and feel that they are a very good value.

I have arthritis in my hands, and found that because the focusing rings are very stiff to turn, and the rounded texture "bumps" give little traction, I am having a difficult and painful time focusing. Maybe, with use, they will loosen up? Perhaps they have to be stiff because of the waterproof feature? I think I will keep them, the price was good. But I won't enjoy using them as much as I have enjoyed binoculars that I have had in the past. The lenses and focus are very good.

    In the spring of 2014 we went on a "Best of Africa" tour which included both Chobe and Kruger game parks. These binoculars worked extramely well for observing the "Big Five" at each park. They were easy to use and have great optics.

    would have given it 5 stars except these are a little heavy but not sure that they have to be in order to have such great optics.
    Fulfillment for this product was excellent.

    the binoculars are great, except there was a small piece of fiber in the lenses which made them unacceptable. except for that they are an excellent purchase.

        Customer Q & A

        3 Questions About This Product
        Q: "How can these weigh the same or less than the 8X42 of the same brand?"
        A: The body of the 10x42 is the exact same build as the 8x42 binoculars. The only thing that changes between the two is 2x magnification. The increase in magnification is just a small difference in the thickness of the glass inserted as the objective lenses. The small difference in glass does not increase the weight.
        Q: "Are the BaK-4 Prisms phase coated or not?"
        A: These prisms are fully multi-coated and not phase coated.
        Q: "Are these binoculars tripod adaptable?"
        A: Yes, you can mount these to a tripod with the added accessory of a tripod adapter (Item#ZHUI002).
