Customer Reviews

Comparable to Monarch5 10x42 These are just as good as my Nikon Monarch5 10x42 but cost over $100 less. I notice six differences:1) The VP feels heavier (4oz according to the specs; it's noticeable but not significant to me).2) The VP field of view is noticeably wider (330' vs 288'). The narrow fov was my only complaint with the Monarch5 and the most significant non financial advantage of the VP that I've noticed.3) The focus nob on the VP turns more smoothly but the Monarch5 is just fine.4) Eye relief on the VP's twistup eye pieces is shorter, but this wasn't an issue for me. Both are comfortable to me (I don't wear glasses).5) The dioptic correction on the VP has a nice click rather than a smooth continuous turn. Personally, I like the clicking version better.6) The rubber finish on the VP is smoother and harder feeling with the Monarch5 feeling a bit softer or potentially sticky or tacky. I like the VP finish more. It's a bit more like a vintage binocular.Carson and Nikon both advertise no hassle warranties. Overall, the tradeoff comes down to weight vs fov with the Carson being less expensive. I cannot tell any difference between the optics even though the Monarch5 advertises more advantages (e.g. ED glass etc). If you're considering the Monarch5, the VP seems just as good. 5Extremely nice binoculars for a reasonable price. These binoculars provide a clear view of wildlife in my backyard or while on a nature walk. I agree they are built like a tank, but not the weight. I was looking at other brands and decided on the Carson's VP series. I made my decision from reading the reviews and watching the Carson provided product videos. I can't wait to view more wildlife with them. 4Among the Nicest Binoculars I've Owned I returned a pair of Steiner binoculars in preference for these. The Steiners provided great performance but simply lacked something for me. In deed, I gave the Steiner AZ830 Binoculars a five star rating as well but wanted a new pair of binoculars that had a real 'wow' factor. I'm happy to say that this Carson model fit the bill for me completely. Without exception, everyone that has tried them out has been blown away. Especially when they learn what I paid. Most importantly, I'm blown away...These have a build quality that at least matches and perhaps even surpasses other units that cost hundreds more. They have a heft and feel that is reminiscent of a professional DSLR camera. The images produced are very bright and clear. Even the included case has a build quality that is very well fitted to this fine optic device. VERY MUCH RECOMMENDED 5Cool binoculars! Wanted to upgrade from some older 8x23 and 10x32 Bushnell binoculars.....unlike my older binoculars these are water and fog proof....I have a nice tripod for them but for me these are light enough to hand hold.....once we have a clear night I'll put them on a tripod to do some viewing of the Pleiades, the moon and Venus.....purchased them without trying first.....very nice binoculars....highly recommended................................they came with a cleaning cloth, nice padded strap......5 Stars for the binoculars but I have to knock one star off for the cheap case.....I see the case and strap for it are pretty much useless. With a better case/strap I would have given them 5 stars. 4Carson VP 8x42 binocs work well for me I had tried Eyeskey 10x42 professional waterproof binoculars but had trouble with their field of view and the focusing knob. So I purchased these Carson VP 8x42, wanting something smaller and lighter for backpacking than my 15 year old large and heavy Oberwerk 8x56 and 15x70 binocs that I had for astronomy.The Carson VP 8x42 provide a nice field of view and excellent clarity. The focus knob works smoothly. I can get focus within 2 meters. I'm keeping them and returning the Eyeskey. The Carsons seem to be better constructed. I'm hoping that the waterproofing of these Carson binocs holds up to various hiking and backpacking conditions.Should they not I'll come back and revise this review. 5Carson VP 10x42 a winner! The Carson VP 10x42 is an amazing binocular. The design, build quality, weight & size are perfect. The optics are stellar with nice contrasty images. Before I bought this I was using my brother's Nikon Monarch 5 12x42 binoculars and this Carson performs just as well IMHO and that's darn good as the Nikon Monarch 5 uses ED glass. Would not hesitate to buy a Carson product again. Before I bought it here on Amazon I sent Carson customer service an email asking if the Carson VP 12x50 would be a wise choice to take to the beach to look at the ships and sailboats that are a few miles out to sea. They responded the next day and said the best Carson for my needs would be the VP 10x42 for less shake while hand holding. 5High Quality Pair of Binos! I researched binoculars for about a week since I had no clue about them and it was a birthday gift for my boyfriend. Once I learned about magnification, objective, field of view, and roof vs. porro, I started comparing many different brands (Bushnell, Celestron, Vortex, Nikon, Vanguard, Leupold). I finally decided on 8x42 since it's easier to see through (less shaky than a 10x) and has a wider field of view. Additionally, the higher the objective, the better the exit pupil (> 5mm) which allows you to see more around dusk/evening time. I was also looking for waterproof/fogproof since my BF will use it when he goes hiking. Bushnell seems to be very popular and reasonably priced. Nikon is great quality but a little more expensive. Celestron is great too. I probably looked at about 50 different binoculars and got it down to 10. After reading the reviews on Amazon, Carson had a 4.8 out of 5 stars and 84% of the reviews were 5 stars. I also liked the price ($139.95 + tax = $151) as it included all the features I liked, in addition to the multi-coated lenses. The deciding factors was the sleek, all-black look and the lifetime guaranty. It comes with a cleaning cloth, a nice case with some pockets, and a neck strap. There are lens caps at each end which is nice too. The lenses are so clear and you can see quite far. I actually want to get myself a pair but I need to find a reason to justify why! I might go with bird-watching lol. Even though this brand is not as well-known as the others, I like the quality of these and I think they were reasonably-priced for the amount of features. I believe if you have an issue with them, you send in $12 for S&H and get a new pair. Anyway, my other choices before deciding on this one was the Bushnell NatureView 228042 (I couldn't find a new pair for cheap) and the Celestron TrailSeeker 71404. Anyways, hope this was useful, happy binocularing! :) 5... a "normal" sized nose but they were not very comfortable to rest on my nose) I found them uncomfortable to adjust (I have a "normal" sized nose but they were not very comfortable to rest on my nose), which I would have ignored, if not the fact that I was expecting to have a pair that I could quickly pick up and have things up close. You have to try to adjust to the subject, and other things closer up are blurred that I needed to stand for a long time trying to point, adjust, etc. - and by that time, your subject may have flown or run off it you are using them for wildlife, as I was. Even with a stationary subject, they were annoying to use in that whatever I expected as in binoculars I've used in the past (pick them up, and just point and take a second to adjust, if you even need to, and you have your close-up subject...done). I found there was blurring and not so "close up" when pointing to the subject. In trying these out, I have decided that in order to find something that I want to use that I can grab and have quick access to a close-up subject, I will be going into a store actually selling them in order to try them out first - this isn't the type item you should order, without trying first, as I've tried two pairs now, online, and was so disappointed in the ease-of-use and comfort of them that I sent them back. I've used cheaper binoculars in the past and never had any "ease of use" or "comfort" problems, so I;m not sure why I can't seem to order a pair with both. I'm pretty confused as I've used binoculars on and off for years and never had this problem, my eyes haven't changed all that much, so I don't know why I can't find somethign comforable. I never imagined I'd have to stand and try to have my eyes adjust to the blurring and then trying to locate what you want enlarged (through a small field of sight they offer) - comfort would have been nice but grabbing each time to be able to see quickly before a subject takes off if it's alive, is paramount to what I was looking to have. For the cost (but I haven't bought binoculars for many years) they were no better as far as how close-up the vision gets you, which were considered run-of-the mill fairly cheap ones years back. I'm giving 3 stars as I can't imagine Carson is making an inferior product, and I can't imagine it's this bad from a well-known company, but I can't see where I'm doing anything wrong in picking them up to focus and it taking WAY too long for any other binocular I used, but maybe it's an individual thing....which is why I have decided to go in-store before going through returns. It's like a bike - you probably should fee/ride it first - I suggest this with binoculars also - or take the chance they are right for you. 3Minimum focus distance is great, the image is bright and sharp Look, I am not gonna expect this binoculars to perform as well as a $300 pair. It is very decent for the money. Minimum focus distance is great, the image is bright and sharp. There is purple fringing but this pair is under $140. I am pretty happy with it. It is definitely a 4 star. 4Very good quality and value. I was surprised how much I like these for everyday use. They are a good value and comparable to higher end brands, I own a few different binos. I bought them here on Amazon and I use them for astronomy, also day use. Mine arrived missing one of the two tethered objective lense covers; but that's not a deal-breaker. I took them hiking in Colorado last month. Super fun. I was able to assess our progress by comparing our ascent to two younger hikers, on the next mountain across the valley. Very clear, good magnification, well collimated. I would buy again or feel comfortable giving as a gift. 5
