They are better than from Zeiss Oberkochen, and you pay 20% of the Zeiss or >Leitz price only. At least in the US, that's 20% LESS than Leica or Zeiss. These are superb binoculars. I have the following glasses: Leica APO-Televid spotting scope CZJ 8x30 DELTRINTEM CZJ 8x21 TURMON monocular Carl Zeiss 8x20 monocular Carl Zeiss 6x42 BGA Carl Zeiss 10x40 BGA Docter 8x21 TURMON black Docter 8x21 TURMON lavender (I couldn't resist ... ) Docter 7x35 BINOCTEM Docter 8x30 DELTRINTIS Docter 10x50 DEKARIS Docter 7x40 DF BGA's Docter 10x40 BGA Asphericals Docter 15x60 NOBILEM Russian 8x30 BPTs5 Russian 7x35 BPTs2 Russian 20x60 BPTs Of these, the 7x40 DF's are the best for general observing, with a close second being the 10x40 BGA Asphericals. (I have almost as many binoculars, monoculars, and spotting scopes as I do Leicas ... and I've owned a bunch of other Zeiss and Leica binoculars over the years, as well.) Those interested in exploring a discussion of binoculars in general, or Leitz, Zeiss, and Docter off-line are encouraged to contact me privately.
