Why should you buy these binoculars?
Viking are renowned for producing top-quality optics that offer exceptional value and we have been blown away by this foray into higher-end optics. This might be their most expensive pair of binoculars to date but the Osprey are truly exceptional and worth every penny!
Much better quality than you would expect from the £500 price.
Very sharp, easy to focus with great precision.
Sturdy and very sharp
They are also very good when wearing spectacles
Bought these binoculars for a safari and so pleased that I did! Without them I wouldn't have been able to view half the animals I saw. Clarity was brilliant and I was able to see so much detail. They were comfortable to hold and feel solidly built. Would highly recommend
These are outstanding binoculars from Viking that stack up well against way more expensive models for a fraction of the price. These 8x42 Osprey's just simply deliver. Brightness, colour, clarity, sharpness and resolution are stunning, even in low light. These have huge ocular lenses and fantastic eye relief, not to mention the expansive field of view. Simply breathtaking! Looking through these is a joy. All the other high-end specs, ED glass, Phase & Dielectric Coating, etc., that you find on much more expensive binoculars, are here. I am constantly impressed that Viking continues putting out a world class product that won't break the bank. More birders and nature enthusiasts are seeing that you can buy outstanding, world class binoculars for under £500. I continue to give a big thumbs down to Swarovski, Leica and Zeiss! So, so overpriced! There is no way anyone can convince me that these high-end brands are 8x better than a pair of these Viking Ospreys.
Compared these bins directly with the former less expensive ones. The difference is significant and well worth the extra.
