With the current sale on Zhumell binoculars I could not resist ordering a pair of these. I am actually really surprised by the optical performance of these non-phase coated roof prism binoculars. The image is not soft or dim as I would expect from a non-phasecoated roof prism binocular. It is actually quite good and entirely acceptable in terms of brightness. Edge distortion is also fairly well controlled.

Ergonomically this binocular is a dream. It has the compactness of an 8x32 with all of the benefits of a full-sized 42 mm objective model. The 24 oz weight also gives you a level of stability not found in many 32 mm models.

The bin looks really classy too with the gray/steel accents.

I would highly recommend this binocular!

I am returning these binoculars. I purchased as a pair of no-worry, inexpensive, semi-compact binoculars for travel/birding, but the optics are inadequate, even for the price. They *are* inexpensive, compact, light, and feel ok in the hand. I would not recommend for birding, but they might be OK for bright fast-action recreation like watching football.

The view is dim, not sharp no matter how much you play with the focus, has poor color fidelity (wood decking looks purple-grey, not redwood-color; foliage looks significantly greyer), and has clear pincushion effect (distortion at edges) and fringing /color aberration. The focus knob is not quick to focus.

If you know much about optics or are particular and visually-perceptive, don't get these binocs...you will be disappointed. Slightly more expensive models on the market are incomparably brighter, sharper, and easier to focus.

      Comments about Bosma LTD Zhumell 8x42 Short Barrel Waterproof Binoculars:

      I needed to purchase"good" binoculars for an upcoming safari. When these arrived I couldn't be more pleased. The clairty, ease of focus were unbelievable. I am seeing things in my yard I wasn't aware of. Watching birds will be so much more exciting. Most of all I am pleased with the compact size. I didn't want something cumbersome to carry with weight/size restrictions for this trip. They are not heavy for my small female frame to handle. Also, I can use them easily with my glasses on...no more having to remove my glasses for focusing. They are better than I expected!

        I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of these binoculars. They are remarkably good for the price. The focus is a little loose but, other than this, I cannot fault them.

              I did my research for this gift for my wife on Mothers Day and I couldn't be and I couldn't be happier with the result.
              The product arrived as promised on time and as described and she loves it.
              Thank Hayneedle.com. This is my first buying experience with you and I am sure it won't be the last!

              Customer Q & A

              Q1: What is the eye relief number for these?

              A: The eye relief is 19.5mm.

              Q2: Which is easier to keep still while viewing 8x or 10x?

              A: The 8x would be easiest to keep still while viewing, due to its lower magnification.

              Q3: Would these be good for bird watching?

              A: These would be excellent for bird watching, they are the recommended size, fully multi-coated and they have a close focus distance of 6.5ft.

              Q4: What's prism type for Zhumell 8x42 short barrel binoculars?

              A: They use Roof Prisms in these binoculars.

              Q5: What's the difference between multi coated lenses and phase coated?

              A: Multi coated optics enhance the color clarity and light transmission of what you are viewing. Phase coated optics enhance light transmission and also reduce and correct the chromatic aberration you can see around the edges of the lens.
