Decent glass on a budget

Bought these binos for my wife on sale. They are decent binoculars but nothing to write home about. I own a set of vortex diamondbacks and would say they are fairly equal in clarity and quality but would give the edge to the diamondbacks. I have also compared them to Razor’s and Swarovski EL’s and the Stryka’s don’t even compare in clarity. Granted these are high end binos but I’m just trying to give a reference point on the clarity of these Styrka’s. In my opinion the msrp is much too high for these binoculars. The Styrka’s come with a lot of extras in the box which is probably where the high msrp comes from. The extras included are a nice touch but nothing screams quality to me. The pair I purchased are slightly fuzzy for my eye. The focus wheel adjusts almost too easily. I prefer a stiffer focus wheel to reduce the chances of losing focus when it is critical. I notice myself adjusting the focus wheel more often on these binos than others I have used. Color and edge sharpness is standard for this category of binos. In the end I believe these are a decent deal for $200 or less but would definitely be disappointed if I paid retail for them.
