While shopping for my hunting / general purpose binoculars, I ran across Fujinon's 7x42 CD on their website.  Are these good binoculars?  How do they compare to Leica's or Pentax's?

Fuji makes great glass, almost up there with Leica and Pentax (in fact, I'd say they were as good as Pentax).

 

Check out www.birdforum.net - great site for tons of info on binocs.  These birders KNOW their stuff.

Well, first of all Leica and Pentax are not exactly in the same class and top end Leicas are quite superb.  Pentax is excellent and the best porro in its price class that I've seen.  However, it is not a match to Leica Ultravid.

 

I have not seen Fujinon roof prism binoculars, but Fujinon porros are comparable to Nikon Superior E (I looked at 8x30 model) which is in the same optical ballpark as Leicas.  Whether Fujinon is as good with roofs as it is with porros I do not know, but for the money porros alway offer better optical quality.
