A customer visiting the Northern Optics retail outlet was looking for a good quality pair of binoculars that were suitable for astronomy and general use. After looking at a couple of smaller 8×32 and 8×40 alternatives, they were instantly blown away with the Visionary HD 7×50 binoculars.
Despite them only being 7x magnification, they could see as much distant detail as the other 8x binoculars. Despite them not being compact, the customer was surprised at how light they were. The large depth of field made them very user friendly.
From a personal point of view, the large 7mm exit pupil makes them ideal for low light / astronomy. Although they look similar to the lower priced Visionary B4 and Classic porro prism binoculars, that is where the similarity ends. The optics and built quality are of a much higher standard.
