    Markedly superior (brighter, warmer, sharper) views relative to my trusty 10-year-old Nikon Monarch ATB 8×42. However, check your binocular as soon as you receive it to confirm the close focus limit, because the first Midas 8×42 that arrived had a >3m close focus point, so we returned it. The replacement focuses as closely as 2m (which meets the specs), which is great, but the eyepieces had water stains on them (how did those get there, if this is a new product?!), 99% of which were easily removed with my old LensPen. Update: each of the four pairs we’ve tried has had different build issues: two had focus knobs with noticeable play, two had close focus points that were longer than the specs, one folds down on itself when held up with one hand, one is too stiff and doesn’t bend easily, one had water spots on the eyepieces upon arrival, and one had a scratch on an objective lens and dust on the inside of the lens upon arrival. We eventually gave up and kept two of them. We’re going to give Athlon the benefit of the doubt, because we love the two pairs we have. If they have significant issues in the short-term, we’ll adjust this review… Update 10/31/2019: Although I still enjoy using the Athlon Midas 8×42, I find myself preferring my >10-year-old Nikon Monarch 8×42. As an advanced birder, I don’t need great image quality so much as I need to obtain a sharp image as quickly as possible. Songbirds are really fast, and the super-smooth Nikon focuses on them almost instantaneously. In contrast, the Athlon takes much longer to acquire focus, partly because of a shallower depth of field, partly because the focus knob is stiffer, and partly because the knob needs to be turned more than that of the Nikon. Update 12/2019: The binocular strap broke the other day, from the plastic attachment to one side of the instrument. I was lucky to catch the binocular before it fell onto concrete! Read more

    I have spent a considerable amount of time looking for superior optics in the sub-insane price range. I am a keen birder, and have relied on traditional recommendations such as the Nikon Monarchs and several Vortex and Bushnell offerings on the market. I came to this product from a wirecutter review. Putting my stock in their verdict, I chose the Athlon Midas 8×42, and I could not be more pleased with this purchase. The ergonomics on this product are fantastic, and that is its least impressive virtue. The clarity and brightness of image is unbelievable, birds literally pop into view with ease. The ED glass really helps with minimizing glare and ghost images (I believe these are among the least pricey bins with ED glass on the market). The close focus and low light performance is just brilliant, and are the icing on the cake. In my opinion, this blows the similarly-priced competitors out of the field. Read more

    Pros: Wide field of view; good eye relief; better than average edge-to-edge sharpness; relatively close focusing; claimed to be waterproof; tripod mount (sneakily hidden beneath the screw-off Athlon logo on the front of the hinge); good resolving power — not any better, frankly, than a 40-year-old pair of compact 8x Nikons against which I compared them… but those Nikons were known for being very sharp and the Athlons blow the Nikons away on field of view, low-light performance, and eye relief, so they’re not really comparable in most regards. But just saying, these are sharp but not otherworldly sharp. Cons: To adjust eye relief, you twist the eyecup housings. The eyepiece lens covers are rubber and they slip somewhat snugly over the eyecup housings. On my first or second use, upon removing the eyepiece lens covers, the outer layer of the eyecup housings (which seem to have been glued in place) came off with the lens covers. The objective lens covers are also a bit clumsy. They hang from the front of the lens barrels from rubber bands and fit inside the barrels. But in the field, they tend to fall out a lot and the bands sometimes come off completely, so it’s easy to lose them. Finally, my binoculars came with a few visible imperfections/dust specks on the internal elements. In practice, doesn’t impact use, but I’d have preferred not to see any… Read more

    I bought these binoculars for an upcoming trip to Alaska. I was a little nervous about getting binoculars from a company I had never heard of, but, as another reviewer mentioned, the Wirecutter review caught my attention. All the other binoculars in this price range would have involved some kind of compromise, either a narrow field of view or a of lack of ED glass or a long minimum focusing distance. These binoculars ticked all the boxes for me, and I stayed within my budget (although it was the high end of my budget). Even though I am no expert, I am impressed. These binoculars are very comfortable in my small hands. They are solid without being unwieldy. The focusing is smooth and easy. Also, I am impressed with how bright they are in low light. The binoculars arrived late in the day, and I gave them their first test drive in the dark. To give you an example, I was able to focus easily and pick out tiny details in an area that my camera metered as f/2.8 and 1.3 seconds at ISO 200. That’s EV2, which is really dark. One more small detail. These binocular do have a tripod mount, which was not mentioned in the reviews or the product specs on the company’s website. No regrets here. I would highly recommend these binoculars. Read more
