Comments about BUSHNELL Powerview 8x21 Compact Binoculars:
I use binoculars primarily for viewing concerts and plays, so I needed something that would fit in a pocket, and these fit the bill. I've been through a couple of pairs that retail for under $20 and had problems with the left and right lenses being out of alignment. This pair doesn't seem to have that problem. The optics on this model are not great but they are OK. The construction quality is reasonable, too. Overall, it's about what you would expect for the price. If you want really good quality optics you'll have to look at higher-priced models.
