Thumbs up Yozaa Azure 8x42 ED Hunting/ Birding Binoculars Review

Iíve been looking for a good set of binoculars for amateurish hunting and general wildlife viewing. Before finalizing the purchase I did some research between the Azure 8x42 ED and the Celestron Trailseeker ED 8x42.

Spec Comparison(see attachment).


It seems that those two models are having similar specs, both with ED (Extra-Low Dispersion) glasses, phase-corrected BAK4 roof prisms, Magnesium chassis, similar sizes and weight, except that TrailSeeker having larger field of view Whilst Azure having MUCH better price.

I chose Azure for the favorable price.


Unboxing
Included in the box there are: 1x binoculars, 1x carry case,1x neck strap, 4x lens covers, 1x users manual and 1x lens cleaning cloth, just like other binoculars. One thing worth to mention is that the carry case looks great with superior quality, the materials and the stitching look to be very good, it will certainly protect your bins from impacts and rains.
The Body:
Azure 8x42 ED binoculars have a traditional single bridged body shape, just like most other roof prism binoculars. The central bridge looks thin but very sturdy, it leaves more spaces exposed on the barrels and gives more surface area for better grip.
Magnesium Body
Magnesium body is a feature that usually only found on higher end products, other bins within this price level will have a polycarbonate plastic frame. Compared with polycarbonate plastic frame, Magnesium alloy added some reasonable weight, but more importantly, gives extra feel of quality to the bins.
Fully Sealed & Nitrogen Purged
The body is fully sealed to make it waterproof, you can use them with confidence in even the worst weather conditions.
It is stated as ďNitrogen purgedĒ to prevent fogging, corrosion and moulding on the internal surfaces.
Rubber Armored
The entire Surface apart from the diopter ring and central focus knob is armored by non-slip rubber for better grip, the rubber feels rather good in hands and again gives more of the feeling of quality.

The Optics
ED Glass

As advertised in the name, the Azure 8x42 ED binoculars implements the objective lenses with extra-low dispersion (ED) properties. ED glass reduces chromatic aberrations and thus results in a higher definition image with less visible color fringing.
Lens & Prism Coatings
Azure 8x42 ED binoculars are Fully Multi-Coated, meaning that all air-to-glass surfaces throughout the entire optical system are coated with multiple layers of special anti-reflectivity material, which improves quality and brightness of image.
Prisms are phase-corrected. With phase-corrected prisms, no colors are reinforced or cancelled, giving a more accurate color reproduction. The effect is particularly visible when looking sunward at a back-lit or silhouetted bird, where more color and detail can clearly be seen in the shadowed areas of the bird.
Objective Lenses
Objective Lenses are deeply set back into the barrels, this helps protecting the lenses from scratching, rain, dust and things like those.

The Image
image quality and brightness are so excellent that even exceeded my expectation, especially when you take the price into consideration.
You can get good image even in bad light condition.
Contact is nice and makes your target stands out well.
Colors look very natural, and thanks to the ED glass, there was ALMOST no visible color fringing, you need to try very hard to see slight blurring and chromatic aberration at the extreme edges of view.

Conclusion:
It is truly impressive and surprising that a set of binoculars at this price has so many top level features and such quality. As far as I can see, the Azure ED is definitely the BEST VALUE OF MONEY binoculars.

What I like the most:
  1. the price-performance ratio;
  2. Magnesium body;
  3. Small size & lightweight. It is truly impressive that these binoculars having so many metallic parts and weighing at only 605g.
  4. Elegant look and the feeling of quality.
