Excellent Optics + Tripod Hand-Held Performance!
I own or have glassed with most of the Alpha offerings in the binocular world marketplace. Currently, I have several high end porros and top end roofs that offer superb FOV's with accurate color, detailed resolution, visual stereopsis and great build quality. They bring visual enjoyment of the world when I venture on bird or wildlife excursions. I use 7X to 12X optics (depending on venue) and prided myself on hand holding a steady image when using 10X to 12X binos. My past positive experiences using the Canon DSLR IS L-Glass lenses always intrigued me and spiked my interest to try the Canon IS offerings in binoculars. After reading great reviews all over the net, I ordered the 10x42L IS WP and began my comparative evaluations. I already understood the possible issues and positive features that the 10x42L was known for. Things like their bulkiness, heft, slow focus speed, lack of high-end ergonomics, quirky accessories and a short, non-transferable warranty period turn many off to the concept of these great optics. However IMHO, any of these possible turnoffs melted away as soon as I engaged their Image Stabilization Prowess...AMAZING! They possess excellent optics (very, very close to my 10x50 SV's), and with their image stabilized feature turned on, the Detail, Resolution and Clarity of FOV makes even my glassing non IS steady hands Obsolete. I typically don't use any type of stabilization assist (mono, bi or tri pods) with my binocular instruments. Hand holding the 10x42L does give a superb and immersive FOV. However, once IS is engaged (convenient), I can easily view a much greater superb, sharp and detailed point of interest as if I had my top end alpha pair on a tri-pod (inconvenient)!! Great Optics, Solid Build, Quality accessories, Quick and Very effective IS function and as a Porro II design, wonderful 3D viewing. Battery life using fresh Lithium's is superb (15 hrs of continuous IS use & charge still at 1.74V)! These unconventional binos now have a permanent place in my excursion outdoor back pack!
IS WP Binoculars
I am happy with my purchase of IS binoculars. Two comments; the binoculars are heavy to carry around in a camera bag. Lens covers are a bit cumbersome to live with,
