These are excellent optically, very well made, and with something to satisfy both birders and bug-watchers with decent close focus spec (their lightness makes them easy to take on a hike).
+ Optics - the image is sharp and bright, maintaining brightness most of the way to the edge, and performing well in low light conditions.
+ Weight - they feel solid but are light enough to make them easy to take on a hike
+ Robust - the rubber armour is good with nice grip to it and decent warranty
+ 20mm eye relief - very impressive
+ Focus mechanism - wheel turns very smoothly and just stiffly enough to make focusing precise and easy.
+ Chromatic aberration - negligible
- There's not much to complain about really - the accessories are a bit basic for binoculars at this price
- The focus ring might have benefited from deeper ridges for extra grip while wearing gloves

I bought these after reading a review in the Independent - it was rated as their Best Buy. After reading some further reviews online I decided to order them despite being at the top-end of the budget I had in mind. Overall, I'm very pleased with them as they feel very well constructed, image quality is excellent and I'm happy that they will last for many years to come. Haven't ordered from ligo before but would have no qualms about doing so again - friendly and efficient service!

Incredible build quality for the price. Optics very good - on a par with far more expensive binoculars I've used. Great value - would recommend!

I bought these after reading a review in the Independent - it was their Best Buy pick for bird watching. I hadn't heard of Viking before but after some further research and reading some more online reviews I decided to take a chance and haven't been disappointed! I opted for the 8x42 so can't attest to the others but the optics are very good. Larger 42mm lens copes well with low-light of early morning. There is a nice solid weight to them but they are well balanced comfortable to wear around the neck. Price and service from ligo was excellent - would highly recommend!

These binoculars look and feel like a quality product, and thankfully have the optics to back it up too! Purchased primarily for watching wildlife in on local walks and in the garden, and the image quality is very clear. Easy to use, comfortable in the hand, and very robust so would definitely recommend.
