I have not seen any info on this brand.  Does anyone have any info on their Apex 10x42 or 10x50's?

They appear to be decent binos that I believe the general consensus here has been that they are probably made side by side with offerings from Bushnell.

The Apex line are very good binoculars better than the Bushnell Legends. I'd saynot quite as good Pentax DCF SP just slightly under.  I think the Apex line is a great deal for the money.  The Shasta Ridge (down from Apex) is very good when compared to others in the same price range.  I wouldnt look below the Shasta Ridge series.

 

I had a set of Alpen Pro's and the optics were ok / good but the focus was VERY touchy and hard to hold true.

 

Another brand that I think holds its own against the Alpen's is the Carson XM series.  (Just a suggestion)
