Vixen Foresta Build Quality: What Should I Expect?
Posted 10 December 2012 - 01:38 AM
Again, the real business of being binos is covered in spades, I have no objection to their performance. I'm just wondering if this is a case where $299 of those $300 went into the glass and so every one that comes off the assembly line is like this or if the build quality of the Vixen Forestas is generally better than this and I need to contact the seller about exchanging for a set that met typical quality standards.
What do you all think?

My biggest concern is the bridge joining the eyepieces (ocular bridge) is thin and will flex with little pressure. It has not been a problem in use though. The optics are great and I think it is a good binocular for the price.
Mine looks just like the pictures in this Binomania review.

I would agree that the optics speak for themselves though. Bright, sharp, well saturated colors with little color fringing in the sweet spot.

I do worry about the build-seems too light-but no problems yet
