Before even taking the Celestron Regal 8x42ED FF binoculars out of the box, you know in advance these are solid and well built. Some may say heavy, I say well built.
No corners cut with accessories, that include a padded neck strap, chest harness and hard case. The wide eyepieces give the impression of a wide FOV, which is confirmed when you look through them. Having the field flattener lenses built in, it is no surprise that clarity is excellent across the field with no pincushion distortion. Although the focus is not the smoothest in class, the image quality with close up views of insects on plants is as good as it gets.
