I have recently purchased a paif or Bushnell E2 Elite 10x42's. I am am a keen birdwatcher and work in the wildlife business as a field guide. I have found these binnoculars to be very light efficient, but there is some refraction in low evening/stormy light and they seem to 'white out' a bit. The eye cups are the most frustrating I have come across in any binnocular I have owned. The special smooth movement of the eye cups is nice, but it does not lock into position when fully open, and therefore is always winding closed when against my chest when carrying them. This has lost me many opportunities to see that nervous bird, and on lifting them to my eyes I find I have to keep winding up the cups to get the correct focal length. There seems to be a lot of grease in the eye cups, and this also attracts a lot of dirt into the mechanism in bush conditions. The focus on these binnoculars is VERY sharp, BUT these are the first binnoculars I've had that require constant adjustment to stay with a bird or wild animal, as the depth of field seems lacking in the focus adjustment. The locking focus ring might suit those use a tripod for lengthy periods, but with wear, this ring seems to snap into its lock position all the time, and again unlocking to focus them loses valuable time. They are not too heavy, but would be better with a multi strap than the strap provided, or lengthy carrying gives me a headache. It's a pity that such a high quality binnocular producing such good images, seems to have missed some basics for practical users in the field. When its hot these eye cups are a real pain, I'm sometimes tempted to glue them into position to stop all the twisting in!
