      This is the first pair of roof prism binoculars at an attainable price point that impresses me. So here’s everything I liked about them: Crisp, clear field of view with sharp focus from the center to the edge. *Most important!* Focus adjustment is smooth and precise. Twist-up eye cups. Good light gathering for the objective size and magnification. The rubber molded coating is comfortable to hold and resilient so as to protect from occasional knocks and bumps. The objective lens caps are tethered to the body so they won’t get lost. The rain shield /ocular lens cap is one piece and has loops for attachment to the neck strap. The neck strap itself is soft neoprene and has plastic quick release buckles on both sides to allow you to quickly remove it. There is a removable cap at the front of the hinge to allow a tripod mounting adapter. The diopter adjustment has enough range for my aging eyes. The padded neoprene case has a carry strap and zipper closure, which is nicer than the typical hook and loop flap closures on cheaper binoculars. Things I didn’t like: The Vanguard logo badge on the top of the housing can be moved with light finger pressure. It may come unglued. (Just a cosmetic issue, won’t affect performance.) Eye relief is not optimal with the eye cups fully extended, but it is sufficient with eye cups extended halfway. Eye cups do not have a positive, easily identifiable detent or “stop” position in the middle of their travel. Shallow depth of field. (Or shallow focal plane, however you prefer to describe it.) Obviously these binoculars are leaning “positive”, at least as far as my observations. Roof prism binoculars always seem to be a compromise between light gathering, eye relief and size. They are more compact than porro prism binoculars. But similarly sized porro prism binoculars tend to have better eye relief and light gathering ability, in my experience. By “eye relief” I mean that in order to see the entire field of view comfortably (for my eyes), the eye cups can’t be extended out to the fully open position. It does feel like there is a center position for them, but it is subtle and easy to twist right past it if you aren’t paying attention. Still not a deal breaker by any stretch, just that I wish there was a tactile “click” in the center of the eye cup travel. The diopter adjustment was easy and worked well to equalize focus across both of my eyes, with some travel left over in case my vision gets worse. Focusing was smooth and easy, but still firm enough to stay put, but you will notice that the depth of field or focal plane is a little on the shallow side, meaning that you will need to refocus a little more often as objects move closer or farther away. It’s also not a big deal, and most people might not even notice this in actual use. Overall, I really like this pair of binoculars. The performance is good, the image quality and focus edge to edge is great. They look good and feel good to use. But I have used (physically larger porro prism style) binoculars costing pretty close to half as much that had equivalent image quality. I suppose that’s not really a fair comparison because the two binoculars used a different optical formula and were quite different in size, with this pair being much more compact. But both had generally great optical performance. With this pair you pay more for the compact size, and higher quality accessories like the strap, case, and lens caps/rain shield. While the accessories don’t really affect the performance of the binoculars themselves, the do affect your use and enjoyment of them, and having nicer accessories like these does add value. I think they are appropriately priced for the build quality, optical quality and included accessories, particularly if compact size is an important attribute for your application. Read more

      My initial impressions of this pair of binoculars was positive. Materials seem good, the eye cups spin up and down easily and do not slip, both objective and eyepiece covers are included, the case is decent, rubber armoring appears to be a good quality, focus adjustment is smooth, diopter adjustment is ok, etc. They can be tripod mounted. The optics, however, were dismal from the first view. The field of view was nearly filled – seriously, about 50% – with a colored haze. Fogged? Nope. Width adjustment? Nope. Flip-down objective covers in the field of view? Nope, and I actually took them off. Eyecups up? Yes. Something on the lenses? Nope. Coatings problem? Doesn’t look like it. The problem? Simple leakage and flare … and on a heavily overcast day. Fully shielding the eyepieces with my hands eliminated a lot of the haze, but by no means all. Looking in the direction presenting the least issues, I still have about 20% of the view obscured. On top of that, in the glimpses I could get out to the edges, only about 50% of the view is reasonably sharp, getting progressively worse toward the fringes. Unfortunately, “sharp” isn’t terribly sharp, either. It’s actually not bad close-in, but less so further out, and there appears to be some collimation misalignment. All-in-all, a pretty bad set. It may be just one bad example off the line, as the other reviews are good. But I have to judge based on what I have, and it isn’t good. I have owned perhaps 15 different sets of binoculars and other optics I currently own Zeiss Victory, Leica BA, Bushnell, Burris, Leupold, Swift and a couple of no-name binoculars sets for kids to use. I’ve had everything from cheap Tascos to surplus military. I’m picky with optics, but by no means a snob, and I will only keep this set as a loaner or kid set. To be fair to Vanguard, I’ve looked through other models in their line, though I never bought a set. Most were at least comparable to others in their price range, but I would pass on this set.

      These are very nice binoculars – especially at this price point. Built with obvious quality, there are features you will appreciate that you usually see only with higher priced models. Nice field of view, really sharp images, with a very accurate focus especially when bird watching and the like without a lot of other things to “confuse” the zoom and focus. I will return to this review after I can get out and about more (post-Covid) and get into some nearby wilderness areas and wildlife preserves. Just with basic neighborhood use, I’m extremely impressed and excited about the potential of these. Quality, features, and a nice price should make this Vanguard a winner. Not much to dislike from here, but I’ll revisit this review after using in some heavily forested areas. Recommended. Read more
