Good evening,

Has anyone got a pair cobra 10x42 binoculars and how do you rate them compared to others of similar prices on the market?

Looking in the brochure they look good and have some good points, but would like some personal opinions of them before any purchases:)

Have a good day

I bought the cobra 10x42 after trying other brands. They suit my eyesight especially at dawn and dusk very well.
I think we all have different eyesight, so go with what brand suits you. Well made, good value for money, but you may struggle to find shops that sell them as I had to order mine in.
I found the eyecup covers a bit awkward.

Just a few additional words about the steiner cobra binoculars 10x42.
I find them fantastic in early morning and evening.
Light and solid construction. I obviously like my pair.

I have a friend who swears by his. I personally don't like them - nothing to do with the optics, it's just that I can't get comfortable with the shape of the eyecups - my face doesn't fit them - something to do with geometry of bridge of nose, spacing of eyes, ocular bones and shape not working. I do find this with quite a few brands including some of the Swarovski.

But they are certainly well built and tough, and if they fit then they would be a good buy.

That's been my experience. The eye cup circlips let go on my Hunter Pros so the cups went slack and spun round uselessly. Drove me mad. Sent them back to Steiner and they came back 6 weeks later exactly the same as before. Hadn't even been cleaned. The low light performance isn't the best. My 50 mm Duralyt is noticeably brighter last thing.
They'd be all right at £200 but for £400 I wish I'd saved up a bit longer and bought a pair of S/H Swaro EL's.
