I had been researching bins for about 3 days, spending some good time to find out what I wanted. At first I knew I wanted Nikon, as I am a Nikon camera person. I also wanted them for a whale watching trip and to take away on holiday with us. Then when I read you can get bins that have a capability of viewing the night sky, I then thought I'd quite enjoy that option. So I found these Nikon 10x50 action extremes and read around and set upon them. Elsewhere, these bins were a lot more money. Nearer £200 and I have never heard of Microglobe's website so if I am honest, I was a bit nervous completing the order. However, I ordered them yesterday (Tuesday) and they arrived at 9am this morning. Really impressed with the delivery, have checked the bins and they're perfect. Good quality, already looked up at the moon & seen detail you couldn't normally see from your own eye view. Comes with a good case and strap. No issues. Can't complain. Thank you.Review by Leslie Jackson

I had a bit of a struggle attaching the neck-strap. Working out how much strap to feed through the buckles in order to attach the eye-piece caps to the strap, so that they would still fit over the eye-pieces, was a matter of "do it - undo it - do it again" until I was eventually satisfied.Review by Adam Ibbott
With pull-out eye-pieces; click-stop right eye dioptre adjustment; and a final fine-tuning adjustment, I guess I spent something like twenty minutes just setting the binoculars up.
The weight, combined with really precise-fitting controls, gives a feel of a well-built, quality instrument and the rubber coating made for really confident handling.
My initial use was in early evening and the light gathering properties of the lenses and their clarity was immediately apparent.
If I had gripes they would be:
That I still found it possible for the object lens covers to be knocked off (and potentially lost!) even when attached to the neck strap in the described fashion;
The binoculars are a really good purchase at around the £130 mark, but I think I would feel disappointed had I paid what I have seen is the supposed recommnded price of nearly £100 more;
I have not yet found a way to actually register the warranty, as the documentation with my pair appears to have been intended for the American market and the UK Nikon website seems only to be tilted at Nikon cameras.
Overall, I am pleased with the binoculars at the price I have paid and am sure that they are robust enough to give me many years of viewing pleasure.

Brilliant - its the second pair of nikon I have bought in a month from Microglobe. 1st Class service and speed of delivery - it seemed they were delivered the moment I put the phone down! The noks are faultless. I expected the brightness to be less than the 7x50 I bought 1st - but they appear just as good. Don't be shy - Buy!Review by Graeme Brown

Placed my order with Microglobe on Tues evening and the binoculars were delivered Thursday morning. Very well packed - boxes within boxes and further protected by soft polystyrene packing. Once unpacked, first impressions are very favourable. Good solid construction with heavy duty rubberised coating. Adjustments are smooth and well dampened. Good grip and good balance. The view through the binoculars is bright and crystal clear. Cables on a local communications mast are clearly visible at 5 miles distance. I bought these binos primarily star gazing and I think I am not going to be disappointed!Review by Denzil Large

I am very pleased with my Nikon binoculars, they were just what I was looking for. I was also impressed at the delivery speed (next day) I now look forward to using them.
Thank you Microglobe for a very good and fast service.
I was also very pleased with the strap I puchased to go with it, even though the binos came with a very good strap.
Thanks once again guys.
