Has anyone else used these?


I've got a pair of 10x42 and I have to say that the only roof prism binoculars under $600 better than these (that I've seen) are Pentax SP, and even that barely.  Considering that I bought my pair for ~$250 on Ebay I am very pleased. 


I compared these side by side with Pentax DCF SP 10x42, Weaver Grand Slam 10.5x45, Nikon Monarch, Wind River Pinnacle and Bushnell Legend roofs.


As far as clarity and brightness go, Pentax was a little better, Weaver and Wind River were a little worse, then Bushnell and then Nikon (very disappointed with Nikon).


For the price though Sightron SIII is great.  I can't hold 10x binoculars all that well (I used a lab jack for the tests) so my allround binos will stil be IOR 7x40.  The one thing where I feel Sightron is a little worse than its competition is field of view.  Otherwise, I am very impressed.

these are also excellent...zen ray prime HD and leupold McKinley's FOV in both are bigger than the sightron's and optics are excellent in both Big Smile

1st generation, or 2nd?

I have a 1st gen. SIII 8x42, and was not impressed at all.  Well, I was impressed with the neckstrap....
