I bought the 12x36 IS III for my wife (and me, I guess) before we went to Hawaii (6th trip in 4 years). We were able to see everything much better. I really added to the trip. Seeing the surf boarders up close ... great wipeouts. Bird were great. So glad I got them.
I love these 12x36 binoculars. Initially I was concerned that needing to keep holding down the IS button for it to operate would be a big detractor, I have found that the button is very sensitive and only light pressure is needed to keep the IS operating. Its only a minor inconvenience.
I have had them for a couple weeks and really like them. Complaints: 1. The eye covers should be one piece instead of 2 and they should be captive. 2. The image stabilization push button should be push and hold for stabilization until it is released AND 2 quick pushes to turn them on for a couple...
love the stabilized vision while looking at deer antlers from a distance. It helps to see details I've missed in the pass. I like that the stabilized feature only works while holding the button down so it's only used when needed and battery will last longer.
Looking forward to taking them on an Alaskan cruise next month!
Have tried this on observing the night sky only, got wonderful views of the Moon, M42, M45, M37, M41, and the comet 46P. The IS feature is the most impressive. Push the button, the hand shake is completely eliminated allow long and detailed view the objects.
I bought these to replace my wife's old 10x30 Cannon bins. The IS iii is a huge improvement. These are only 2 oz. heavier and way brighter and more powerful. Very pleased and impressed with Canon IS technology.
After reading lots of positive reviews I got to first hand experience what these binoculars could do. They deliver as promised and am entertaining getting a pair of the higher powered ones down the road.
Is image stabilization worthwhile ? Yes. We have had a pair of 10 x 50 for awhile and I was concerned that I would lose clarity with the smaller 36 mm lens which would be more than I gained with the 12x magnification. but the 12x was actually better.
The binocs are going thru testing. They have some chromatic aberration to them, the stabilizer works fine and the image is crisp. I bought them for concerts so I can see something from the nose bleed seats. Once I use them for that I'll update this.
