Remarks:

Regarded by many as Canon’s finest binocular. It does feature superb optics, an excellent image stabilization, and is fully waterproof. Because of the large eyepieces, eye placement is not easy for people with narrow IPD, and for a 10x binocular, the Canon is quite heavy and a large instrument in your hands. Still, a fabulous binocular overall.
