    My husband likes the fact that they are self focusing he uses them for hunting. I like looking at the wild life. You don,t have to worry about tryin to focus and miss something.I have two sets.One set is a compact set which are great for carrying in his pocket. They are both light weight. I THINK THESE ARE A GREAT PRODUCT. They also work well with glasses.

    I use binoculars for two very different viewing experiences.

    First, I ride horses in the back country and use them to view wildlife and scenery at a distance. These are great for that, love them for that. The auto focus is so cool and works great in this situation.

    Second, I like to birdwatch. I was hoping to use them in that situation. Unfortunately, the birds tend to come in closer than a couple hundred feet and these bi's just can't focus at all in close. If the birds are several hundred feet out, these work great and again the auto focus is just plain cool. If I'm birdwatching, these are not the binoculars that I will take with me.

    Even so, these are well worth the money, they are a good multi-purpose binocular that work well in many situations, just not close in.

      These are going to be a great gift for my grandsons this Christmas. Thery are just the right size for their small hand to hold. I'd given them a five star if there was a way to focus them for close up viewing. Distant viewing is great. I had to remove my glasses to look through them.

      Comments about Bushnell 8x25mm PermaFocus Focus Free Compact Binoculars:

      Bought these for a safari trip and they're one of the best purchases I've ever made. They're lightweight and they really did auto focus. For the animals in the distance, I could really see them as if they were right next to me. And could even see details on animals that were a little closer. Not having to spend time trying to focus, and probably missing the animals as they moved, was definitely a key aspect of these. And a great value to boot!

          Comments about Bushnell 8x25mm PermaFocus Focus Free Compact Binoculars:

          To be honest, I am not greatly impressed with the purchase process or product itself. The delivery date was included in the email, however, the date was not met as the item was out of stock apparently but this was not relayed to me. Since this was intended to be a holiday gift the delivery date was important and since this was not conveyed to me I had to purchase a similar item from another seller to have it available at the proper time. After receiving the product I was not terribly impressed with the functionality given that it has only minimal adjustment with regards to eye adjustment (width). Perhaps since this is one of the less expensive models it comes down to one gets what they pay for. Thank you for taking the time to read my review.

          Customer Q & A

          Q1: What is the greatest distance you can see with the Bushnell 8x25 PermaFocus Focus Free Compact?

          A: Like all binoculars, the Bushnell 8x25 PermaFocus Binoculars will allow you to see all the way to the horizon, however far that is in your area.

          Q2: Hi. I just ordered a pair of 8X25 PermaFocus binoculars for my wife. Does it come with a strap and case?

          A: Yes.  The Bushnell 8x25 Permafocus binoculars do come with a neck strap and a leather case.

          Q3: Is the eye relief sufficiient for use with eyeglasses?

          A: If you must wear glasses, you’ll need at least 15mm of eye relief or longer if you want to see the full field of view with your glasses on. The Bushnell 8x25 PermaFocus Focus Free Compact Binoculars are only 10mm.
