Based on a number of positive reviews, I ordered a set of Tasco 7x50 "Offshore" porro prosm binoculars w/ internal compass.

Overall they seem to be pretty good, but in bright light I've noticed what almost appears to be black lint or dust throughout the image. The focus and resolution are still great, but there's just this super-fine erratic lines in the image.

Has anyone ever encountered this or know what the problem might be?

Thanks!

Turn it around while holding it up to bright light(don't point it at the sun) and look backwards through the objective lenses. If you can see alot of dust or other garbage (paint flecks/specks) inside the binocular you need to send them back.
   
Also, for the price, these only have Fully Coated optics, so, you can do "alot better" by going to a more reputable brand, such as Nikon Action Extreme ATB waterproof, or, Nikon OceanPro w/p, or, Nikon Sports and Marine w/p.

If the spots are not inside the binoculars, they are inside your eyes. They are called floaters and are normal. I first saw some floaters in a pair of binoculars after spending several days in a very sunny and bright place.
