Canon IS binoculars - worth the investment?

Postby longshortsighted » Fri Dec 10, 2021 11:55 pm

I thought I would treat myself to some Canon IS binoculars, maybe 15x50.

They're pricey but reviews do list negatives around the rubber. Just wondering if people who have them think they are good or is there better IS binoculars out there?

I use specs and would prefer to keep them on when I use the binoculars.

I read a user review that recommended Canon anti-fog eyepieces for the IS binoculars and Zacuto rubber eyepieces over the reversed eyecups and a 58mm lens UV filter to protect the optics. So wondering if anyone can shed any light on these?

Wanting to hear peoples thoughts before I splash out. Its a lot of money that I cannot easily replace if they are rubbish and I need a different pair.
