Hi Guys. My really first decent pair on bino's. Might as well jump in with both feet. These binoculars are so awesome! (And yes, they are Pimp Daddy!)

Anyways, here is a pic of them. I added the Field Optics eyeshield, The Hoya (notice how they are color coordinated with the red ring!) 52mm lens hood, 52mm to 48mm step down ring (for my 2" telescope filters) and the 48mm pinch optic caps. Not pictured are 52mm pinch optic caps inside the Hoya Hoods. The hoods can be folded back into 3 different positions. The only thing I don't like about the hoods is that they are not threaded on the inside for mounting filters. Thanks for looking!

Are those recoil or electric start? Either way, very nice. Looks like a "AAA" cup if I'm not mistaken. You wouldn't mind letting me borrow those this summer for a few weeks? I'll PM my address just in case. :ubetcha: Would LOVE to hear an observing report :)

It's a wonderful binocular. In any size, these Canon IS binoculars are amazing. You made a great choice IMO.
