Canon 18.50

#1

Post by Youngarthur »

As an old man, rather than check my bank balance while lying in my Coffin, I purchased the canon 18.50 stabilised. Living on the Scottish moors, there is no light pollution or other houses etc. The Stabilisation is excellent, and there is enough adjustment to use them without my glasses, and they are a pleasure to use. I checked out other Stabilised ones, but these suit my purpose.

I have a friend that has a couple of different stabilized Canon binoculars and he really enjoys them as well.
