    Superlite,
    Yes, I have been using a pair for several years . Actually I am on my second pair as I gave the first ones to a friend of mine. Both are working great, however the first pair are beginning to have cracks /circular tears in the eyecups ,they are about six years old.
    Two things about them : first is that at the high magnifications you have to focus very carefully or you over run the sweet spot. two , because or their mechanisms to increase power are not easily sealed I wouldn't use them in heavy rains . I have been able to resolve elk at distances that others with 10 and 12 power high end binocs were only able to see forms unidentifiable to them /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/cool.gif. Of course at the highmags you must use a rest . I find them to be a good tool at a good price.
