Leupold BX-3 Mojave Binoculars
I'm sad to say i was disappointed with my purchase. I have always used Leupold scopes on my rifles and never been disappointed. I purchased these to replace older Nikon Monarchs. being Leupold, i didn't even shop around or look at other brands knowing they would be great. I purchased the 12x and while out deer hunting i compared them, they look the same as my 10 year old Nikons 10x and even with the larger magnification it looked the same. I used them in low light situations and during the day and no different Im sorry to say. i expected a lot more from Leupold. time to shop for new ones.

Pretty good Binoculars!
These binoculars have a "solid feel" to them. So far I am very pleased with the clarity. There is a little more to adjusting the Diopter than other binoculars that I am experienced with, which is not a problem unless you plan to share them.

Reliable As ever
Like all of the Leupold products I have used, they have great bang for your buck. What I buy when I want optics that wont fail me 40 miles from the road.

Great 10x42 Optics
These Leupold 10X42 Mojave binos are the best for the $$$ I've ever looked through (including some very nice European-German-Asian glass). They have similar quality performance of my beloved BX-2's...bright, very sharp with great resolution, excellent color and detailed low light vision, all with Edge to Edge clarity and great build quality. However, the BX-3's have additional silver enhanced coated roof prisms and in direct comparison, the BX-3's step it up a notch in every aspect, especially with their wider FOV over my BX-2's (60ft)! This wider FOV creates a flatter image, has a deeper, more 3-D like DOF and greater eye relief with less eye fatigue that leads to easier sustained long term viewing. They are very easy to hold and have the lockable diopter adjustment set in the large focus control...Nice. Their low light capability is really excellent and helps me extend game glassing beyond the twilight of dusk.
The BX-3 Mojaves are light weight, with an ergonomic open bridge compact design that makes them very comfortable to hold for long periods. I believe these BX-3's are the valued "sweet spot" in the Leupold binocular line up and will become my go to optics for the range and hunting
