        Comments about Swift Audubon 8.5x44 HP Binoculars:

        I got these binoculars specifically for a boat excursion on the Amazon, and they positively impressed everyone on the trip. Focus was easy for scanning each tree looking for birds, reptiles, and mammals--all experts at camouflage. Just fine with or without glasses. Humidity, temperature changes and rain were not a problem.

          Comments about Swift Audubon 8.5x44 HP Binoculars:

          Although I don't own Zeiss, Leica, or other high end binoculars I do own Nikon Monarks,Leupold Katmais, and Bushnell Legends as well as Swift Eaglets and I find my Swift Audubon 8.5x44 to be the clearest and sharpest of all my binoculars.
          These binos are just great in birding and wildlife observing application and I couldn't be happier. Although a touch heavy they are well made and solid in your hands. I've already showed them to friends and have encouraged them to consider the Audubons for their next birding glass. I cannot say enough about the images they provide - bright too! Eye cups twist-up, lock-up, & STAY UP! Solid in every way!

          A nice price and great service as always from Binoculars.com. I don't understand why Swift is
          not better known with production quality such as this. They make the Audubon and the Eaglets in Japan and perhaps their other models as well. Incidently, my very first pair of binos were Swift porro prisms and they were purchased 45 years ago.

            Very good bird watching binoculars

            By Daniel Possin

            from Undisclosed

            Comments about Swift Audubon 8.5x44 HP Binoculars:

            These are really fine glasses. They're bright, sharp with little chromatic aberration but for the very edges of the field of view. They handle well. My wife has very small hands but finds them much easier to deal with that the 7x50 porroprism binculars they replaced. Their most outstanding characteristic is, in may opinion, their long eye relief, which makes them exceptionally good for people like myself that need to wear glasses when using them.
