Remarks:

The Kenko 10×30 IS is one of a number of new stabilized compact binoculars that recently appeared on the market, some of the others being the Vixen Atera 12×30 (see separate post), the Fujinon Techno-Stabi 12×28 (see separate post) and the Canon 8×20/10×20 (see separate post). The Kenko, Vixen and Fujinon seem to share most of the essential parts of their optical and stabilization systems; notable differences: the Kenko’s magnification is 10x (Vixen and Fujinon: 12x), and the Kenko uses larger eyepiece lenses than the other two. In terms of optical and stabilization performance, BINOCULARS TODAY was neither convinced by the Kenko, the Vixen nor the Fujinon  (see further remarks in the separate post about the Fujinon Techno-Stabi 12×28), since none of them reaches the performance of e.g.the new small Canon binoculars (see separate post about Canon 8×20 IS).
