The Lynx from Kite Optics has one of the widest fields of view of current 8×30 roof prism models. Central sharpness is good, off-axis sharpness satisfactory, suppression of stray-light could be a bit better. The Lynx has characteristics very similar to the Nikon Monarch 7 8×30 (see separate post) and the DDoptics Fieldstar 8×30, and according to some, all three are essentially one and the same binocular, with only small differences between them.
