This is the the middle model of the three new Canon binoculars with 32mm objectives, the other two being 10×32 and14x32, see separate posts:
Canon 10×32, https://binocular.ch/canon-10×32-is/
Canon 14×32, https://binocular.ch/canon-14×32-is/.
Excellent optics (slightly too much CA), excellent image stabilization, but small exit pupil and therefore not a binocular for twilight or night use.
