This is the second pair of this binocular that I have owned. Something went wrong with the first pair, and I did look into getting it repaired, but I was told there was some reason it wouldn't be repairable (it was years ago, and I can no longer remember the reason). So they have been sitting unused for years. So I purchased this new pair. I love them every bit as much as I did my first pair of binoculars. The stabilization makes images very steady and clear. I laughingly refer to these binoculars as "nose hair" binoculars because from a distance you can get a very close-up look and clear look at anything.
The only issue I had with this new pair of binoculars was that it did not come with a neck strap. This is not a lightweight binocular, and a person wouldn't be walking around for hours holding them by hand or in their carrying bag--which does not have a shoulder strap, anyway. They need to be quickly accessible--hanging from your neck so you can grab them on a moment's whim (there are actually slots built into the binocular for a neck strap). My solution was to take the neck strap off my old, unused pair and put it on this new pair.
For me, this binocular is the next best thing to a spotting scope.Read full review

If you have only one pair of binoculars in your life; these are it !!!!!!!!
These are really fantastic; edge to edge clarity is phenomenal!! Depth of field is beautifully long; like it should be! The further the distance the better the Image stabilization!! The only sad thing is why are these not in a hard case? And why no objective lens caps; come on Canon, at these prices, no excuses ???

Fantastic Product! Worth every Penny!
I bought the binoculare for use on a boat and they are fantastic! I have heard complaints about the eye cups and the weight but for my use they work great as I do not use them for extended lenghts of time. For the first time I can actually use binoculars on a boat and see clearly!

Canon IS 18x50 Binoculars
Absolutely the best binoculars we have ever used. Would highly recommend them to anyone who wants a VERY clear, stable image weither for hunting, bird watching, or just looking at distance views. We own a pair of Canon IS lower power binoculars and the extra power is definately worth the price.

These Bynoculars are fantastic
When you look thru a pair of these binoculars you will never want to use another pair. When you turn on the stabilizer the image becomes steady and clear, specially at this magnification.
