Perfect for birdwatching My wife and I recently started birdwatching and I bought her a pair of these binoculars for her birthday. We have tried other birdwatchers’ binoculars which cost far more than these but we are more than happy with the Lightwings. They are beautifully made, light and crystal- clear.
