I bought some binoculars recently for about £90. After a lot of research I settled on these:

bestbinocularsreviews.com/Opticron8x33SavannaR-164.htm

And bought them from here (seem about £30 cheaper than everywhere else)

birders-store.co.uk/opticron-savanna-r-8x33-binoculars.html

That best binoculars site has loads of helpful articles.

bestbinocularsreviews.com/guides/

It seems a lot of cheaper pairs (sub £200) might skimp on some features. The Opticron pair I've linked there, according to the review, have multi coated lenses right the way through (anti-reflective coating, they can have up to 20 internal lenses and some cheap pairs only coat the outer lenses which affects the image). They are gas filled to prevent fogging, and they're really nicely made, and they had a few other things going for them too.

Take all this with a pinch of salt, it's all very new to me, but it seems its worth doing a bit of research and shopping around, particularly in smaller stores and maybe ebay sellers. That's generally where I found the best prices for the pairs I had on my shortlist.

For what it's worth, I think the pair I went for is fantastic, don't have much to compare them to though of course!

If only it has a image stabaliser.
Great find -these were really expensive to start with - I managed to get a good pair off eBay but I would have gone for these as they are new
They are good - We took them to Canada and Alaska and these were a god send
I would try them first, lots of magnification will just make it dark.

Actually missed the obvious thing that the one's in the op are smaller than the pair I've been banging on about there. Mine are mid size - they're not big at all, not like a full size pair, but if you want something really small that's a different kettle of fish.

(What an odd saying...)

That's because they were bionculars, not binoculars.

It's horses for courses really. For a lot of people that just want magnification, these will be a great pair of casual binoculars - for taking on a walk and looking out to sea, that sort of thing. If you're after a dedicated pair of birdwatching binoculars these probably aren't what you're looking for. The high magnification and small objective lenses will mean poor field of view, poor light gathering and too much hand shake for checking the finer detail in plumage. I used to sell binoculars about 15 - 20 years ago. The traditional spec for birdwatching binoculars was always 8x42 or 8x32 for a slightly more compact option. I actually used to sell Opticron and had several pairs myself. They certainly used to be a really great brand. It's nice to hear that from your experience that they still are.

Exactly. Especially as they're only 25mm. Personally I'd go for 8x42s or 10x42s .
are they compatible with my D810?

Think, you would want a scope rather than a pair of Bino's to match up to a DSLR. Though its not something I've tried to do. Thought about it for some moon shot's with my Canon 5d mk 3. But never invested in a telescope.

I have this pair. They're zoomable and at 16x you don't really need stabilisation. At 25x it would be nice. At full zoom it gets darker. Just consider these as 16x and the 25x max zoom as a bonus.
My pair is dark red, they'r lightweight, compact and would not look too out of place at the theatre. Allround these are nice to have for ents or casual wildlife and scenery viewing.
[Edit] no mention of a pouch or case in the Currys offer. A pouch or some sort is a must. Also mine came with a branded neck strap, that's a bit of a necessity too.

Cold..no night vision..
25mm at end is not good, poor view
Looks like Amazon have dropped their price to match: amazon.co.uk/Nik…VRU
Zoom binoculars are a gimmick and offer poor light levels. They’re always sold off as they are terrible to look through compared to fixed magnification binoculars. Avoid
What are these used for nowadays?

Any tips for the best spec to take on safari ? Thanks

Any tips for the best spec to take on safari ? Thanks

I've been out of the trade for a while now so I don't know all the latest models. Spec wise, I think you'd struggle to do better than a good 8x42 or a 10x42 (where the first number is magnification and the second number is the diameter of the front lens in mm). As you go up in magnification, your own natural hand shake also becomes magnified. Don't assume that higher magnification is always best. If you're out all day, the comfort factor of being able to hold a good pair of 8x (sometimes even 7x) steady can be the real winner. Certainly the larger 42mm lenses should let plenty of light in for use in the early morning and later evening and give you a comfortable field of view for spotting wildlife. Hope that helps, enjoy your safari!
