The Sportstar EX 8×25 is good alternative for those who want a decent pocket binocular, but cannot or will not spend the kind of money needed for a same size Zeiss or Swarovski instrument. The image is not as bright as in the more expensive competitors, but the Sportstar is truly waterproof, well finished and equipped with decent optics, has a wide field of view for an 8×25, and represents very good value for money.
