The price difference is well worth it, however. I use them for stargazing. The clarity is wonderful, and they have excellent light gathering capacity.
They have a soft, comfortable texture and feel great in the hands. This comfort means that the slightly extra power these binoculars have will not result in any more of a shaky image as a result - at least for me. They are not heavy at all, either.
The focus is solid, smooth and precise, and does not wander out. They eyepieces are not uncomfortable, either.
Overall, I cannot imagine a better piece of equipment for the price. Even if the Celestron pair I received were not defective, you can literally feel the difference in quality.
That is we THOUGHT we were watching the wild life!
Right out of the box this item aimed to please. The weight isn't a bother at all, and the size isn't so gawky that you have to do a balancing act to use. The lenses are Nikon and boy do they perform! The first time I used them I spotted an American White Pelican flying in the jet stream over our house, heading East from the Gulf Coast. I was in shock because we've never seen a bird such as this one where we live. And to confirm that this was definitely a Pelican was no problem with the power of these binoculars. I could literally see the Pelican's long beak as it was gracefully soaring across the sky.
Now clarity in a 16 x 50mm is a lot to hope for in a pair at this price. There's considerations to be made on the quality of the optics, what the piece is made of, the "gluing", etc. As far as I am concerned, this is one of the best all around values for the money. I feel as though I bought something far more expensive than I have, and I wouldn't hesitate to tell anyone looking for the best of class binoculars to spend their hard earned money on a pair.
Now it's back to Wild life watching.
A nice compromise in weight and magnification is Nikon's 7216 Action 8x40 binoculars which I have had the opportunity to try. The magnification is almost as strong, there is a nice big field of view, and they are significantly lighter than the 10x50 pair I ended up buying. (The exact weights and other specifications can be found on Nikon's website.) Unfortunately, at the time I wanted to make my purchase the 8x40s were harder to get and more expensive. Still, other than the weight I have nothing to complain about, and the 10x50s are not so heavy that I can't wear them around my neck.
