Like its MeoPro siblings, the 10×42 features a relatively wide  field of view (6.7 degree = 117m/1000) and exhibits a bright image with good central and very decent off-axis sharpness. The MeoPro binoculars may be among the last good middle class binoculars which are made in Europe or America (the MeoPro series, it appears, are assembled in the USA with parts produced in the Czech Republic).

Note: in  early 2022, the 10×42 and 8×56 models of the MeoPro HD line were improved/upgraded and are now called “MeoPro HD Plus” (no information available yet wheher the other MeoPro HD models – 8×32, 10×32, 8×42 – will also be upgraded).
