Of the three new Canon binoculars with 32mm objectives, the other two being 10×32 and 12×32, this is the one with the highest magnification. Good optics (clearly too much CA, though), excellent image stabilization, but quite a small exit pupil and therefore useful in bright daylight, but definitely not a binocular for twilight or in otherwise difficult lighting situations.
