This is a no-frills binocular-lacking waterproofing, fully multicoated optics and high-index BaK4 prisms (none of which is quite as important as we've been told). Still, the Burris Landmark is a solid performer that I'd buy and use for hunting if on a tight budget. Negative comments referred mostly to the vertical-offset configuration of its Porro prisms (used to put full-sized 8x42 optics in a very compact package). This admittedly feels strange in the hands and makes the focusing wheel harder to reach. Even so, it is better built and has better resolution and image brightness than any roof-prism binocular in its price range.
