Rated 5 out of 5 by from My go-to binocs are Steiner Ranger Pro 10x56mm but the 8x56mm Shadowqst are brighter and lighter weight. A bit bulkier. I don't mind since the poro-prism is pretty efficient and the strap is comfortable. I hunt wildboar late into the p.m. and these Shadowquests are effective.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent excellent excellent I've had a few different brands of binoculars. The ShadowQuest 8x56 are amazing. Very clear glass. Easy to focus. Best at lower light viewing too. They are BIG in your hands. High quality construction. Glad I purchased them. Would recommend!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Superb quality and optics I purchased these binoculars primarily for astronomy viewing.. The larger 56mm lenses along with the lens coatings provide 96% light transmission in a unit still light enough to use without a tripod. The low light performance is superb. Stars are tack sharp without halos or aberrations. The auto sports focus system makes focusing a one and done process. I recommend taking your time and getting the focus exact on for each of your eyes. I used a street sign at 50 yards for focusing and at that distance I can see the screws on the sign. At 100 plus yards I can see buds on tree branches easily. The glass and optics are superb world class. At this price point you would be hard pressed to find better. Best binoculars I have used highly recommended!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Replacement for 30 YO Steiner 8x56 I purchased these to replace a 30 year old pair of 8x56 Steiner porro prism binoculars that were deemed unrepairable by the US service department. They are very clear under low light conditions. Hopefully they will last longer than the last pair.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good for Eyeglass Wearers This is one of only three binoculars that allow people wearing glasses to see the full view due to their long eye relief. We need a minimum of 20mm and this one has 24.4mm. Most other binoculars average 17mm.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Fantastic optics but a couple fatal flaws First off let me preface by saying that if this were a review of just the optics it would be hands down five stars. These binos perform beyond my expectations but there are countless reviews already saying this so I'll end it there as I echo each and every one of those opinions on the glass. So why three stars. Well first and foremost the clicloc design, this single point of failure and yes it could be argued is on any strap design but you can see wear on traditional mountings. As a mechanical engineer by trait I'm concerned how the plastic clip will hold up bouncing around in the field. Get a harness you say, sure I plan to do that, but looking at what Steiner offers their harness is a traditional clip, forgoing the clicloc system so that just makes my fear of these coming unhinged at exactly the wrong moment even greater. Ideally I'd love to use them with something like a KUIU harness but given their size that isn't possible so any folks out there that have a decent solution for a harness please reply in comments. The other down tick is the glow lights. There is no obvious way to attach these without tearing off the lense covers which I'm then not sure I'd be able to reattach. Frankly, this is a moot point as the binos will either be around my neck or in a harness so fumbling for them in low light or the dark isn't a huge feature but more of a marketing gimmick in my opinion. In full transparency I've not owned these for a long period of time so these are just my initial impressions. If over time the system clicloc system holds up I'll certainly revisit this review and give it the 5 stars for optics that it does deserve. I just need to find a suitable carrying solution first. Would I recommend to a friend yes, but with caveats on the clicloc system.
