    The 20X50 are a bit sensitive and take a bit of getting used to. I live on the 5th floor apartment and have a perfect view of the city of Sydney, approximately 40 kilometres distance. I can see the two flags on top of the Sydney Harbour Bridge. I am very satisfied.

  2. Catherine Davies (verified owner)

    I bought these binoculars for my husband whose interests include plane spotting and bird watching. He is thrilled with the quality, feel and vision. I’m happy that he is ecstatic. The service was prompt. Altogether a great choice to buy Australian.

  3. Rod Grace (verified owner)

    Definitely not very happy with these. To get a full view I have to put my eyes so close to the lenses that they immediately fog up. Could not recommend them.

  4. Jeffrey Cassar (verified owner)

    Not quite as clear looking at long distance object than short distance objects still has hazy effects feeling disappointed with them.

  5. Jeffrey Cassar (verified owner)

    I have had a pair of Pantax 20×50 Binoculars which were great. I am finding that the 20×50 Avalon seem to be a bit hazy at the moment I will be testing them once the weather clears up. I can see out to sea for about 20km’s on a clear day so I am waiting to see weather the Avalon lives upto it’s marketing.

    Great binoculars. I’m very happy with the 20/50. Just set the focus on both eyes and the whole world pops into view. I also bought the Avalon 10/42 PRO HD Binoculars for an all rounder. I’m very happy with both of my Avalon binoculars, they’re good quality and value for the money.

  7. Barbara (verified owner)

    Very happy with these binoculars, can see what I wanted to see, nice & light as well!
    Speedy delivery, very happy all around, thank you!

  12. KathrynBorland (verified owner)

    Fantastic, Love them Perfect for night sky.Arrived promptly and safely.Great product.Thank you.

  13. Shane Murphy (verified owner)

    The binoculars do everything I wish from watching our grandchildren at rowing to yacht races near our house. Just great .

    One criticism I have though is the shoulder strap it is already fraying at the ends not good for high end binoculars.

  14. James Bell

    Great binoculars, crystal clear focusing , simply love them , very happy that i bought them.

  15. Colin (verified owner)

    Arrived in excellent condition
    Also purchased an adaptor for use on tripod
    Very happy with the performance of these 20×50’s

    It grieves me to put a bad review of these binoculars, bearing in mind, that Avalon Optics has been so professional in their dealings with me. If I could rate the company and their service, they would get five stars.
    But sadly I can only agree with Jan V and Mark Pancoast (earlier reviews). I have a pair of Eschenbach 10×50 binoculars that were purchased some 25 years ago. These are still a very good pair of binoculars, but I wanted something with greater magnification. For me, these didn’t do the job, the magnification was no different from my 10×50’s and also the subject matter was less clear than viewing through my Eschenbach’s.
    Luckily, I saved all of the packaging, and didn’t open the bag with the strap in it and the bag containing the cleaning cloth. Because of this I was able to get a full refund (not the cost of return though).

  17. Jan V (verified owner)

    A big disappointment. I have been struggling for four months since April with it and now I threw it finally to the bin. I bought it in a hope to gain greater magnification to my Pentax 12×50 PCF WPII, but I found optics and ergonomic of eyepiece of Avalon 20×50 very poor.

  18. Colin Dale (verified owner)

    Excellent value for high quality binoculars. I’m with Tex when it comes to plane spotting.

  19. Susy Martini (verified owner)

    Loving the Avalon 20 x 50 binoculars. A much appreciated Christmas present

  20. Christian (verified owner)

    After writing several mails and a negative review, which I can’t find on the web side anymore, the customer service came back to me and send me a new pair of binoculars. So in the end everything went good and next time I will be more patient and wait for the reply. Thanks for the good service in the end.

  21. John Wood (verified owner)

    Excellent binoculars we can see very clearly all the boats on the river from our 6th floor apartment. They were packaged very well and the tracking through australia post was great.

  22. Mark Pancoast

    I normally use 10X42 that are excellent. I wanted something more powerful. These are worth perhaps $20 or $30. They are of little value to me. I do not recommend them as the field of view seems far too small, and focusing is very challenging. I will likely never reach for these binoculars. I carelessly threw away the packaging, so I will keep these and eat the cost. They were sent with appropriate packaging, arriving in good condition.

  23. Simone Baron (verified owner)

    I had other binoculars but found they didn’t really allow us to watch the boats at sea, but these new Avanlon ones are brilliant, can see so far out to see and so clear, fairly light and were at a great price, also delivery was very quick and efficient

  24. Steve W (verified owner)

    The best decision I made with the Avalon 20×50 binoculars. Great for whale watching & any other activities that I have a interest in.

  25. Peter J

    Prompt delivery and well packaged. Light weight and easy to use. Very good quality vision.

  26. Gerard

    Yes, very good thank you.

  27. Paul Proctor (verified owner)

    Excellent binoculars perfect for what I want.
    Delivery time was excellent – the whole purchase was excellent and the company a pleasure to deal with. Thank you

  28. John Maguire

    Thank you the binoculars are excellent.

  29. Tex (verified owner)

    Perfect for plane spotting from our elevated home.

  30. Ian

    Staggering. It took me a while to get used to them as they have a relatively small point of sharpness in the view (dead center of course) and such a shallow depth of field which is most striking in the middle distance. It generates a spectacular kind of ‘3D’ effect and it is simply incredible for bird watching, especially for birds in flight and hovering birds of prey like kestrels. I wasn’t expecting that at all, we simply bought these to have a bit of fun with them. I’m less keen on them for longer distances ironically, hard to keep still when handheld and my eyes seem to struggle to focus properly on things much further away. But for that sweet middle spot… unbeatable.

  31. Geoff Dunstan (verified owner)

    They arrived in pristine condition and are working very well. The high magnification makes it ideal for looking at distant objects, plus the nigh sky from a dark location. Best to use a tripod for this. Ideal for curious people like me.

  32. SONIA B

    The Avalon 20×50 binoculars arrived safely and promptly. My husband couldn’t wait to get his hands on them and I have had trouble prising them out of his grip ever since, especially on our daily trips to the beach where he can now watch boats, birds, and surfers to his hearts content. It took him a couple of days to get used to the amazing magnification and the sensitivity of the binoculars but he assures me he has mastered it now. Many thanks for the prompt efficient service and of course the great product.
