Is this quality binocular, comparable to Leica or other high end ones?

Is this price fair, good, excellent?

Generally, Leupold binocs aren't up there in the most popular brands for binocular geeks. The quality is good, but most agree you can get better for the same money, especially when looking at fairly expensive ones. I have a pair, being a Leupold fanboi, but don't have other good binocs to compare against.

That said, here's a very positive review of what looks like those very binocs:

Here are some good binocular research sites -you can search there to see what people say.
