If you know that these are not high end and won't do much for far distances, then you're likely not to be disappointed. These are best for short distance, concert, play, better view across the yard type binoculars. These are not bad, they are just limited. Compact to take with you without a lot of weight or bulk. I doubt the case they come with will last if used less than carefully. If you want good or better, keep looking. If you want fair and lower price these will fit the bill.
