If you are OK with the performance of the IS III stay happy with it. I'm afraid there is nothing worse than looking for flaws in binoculars, because you would find them in any, no matter the price point. So if CA has never bothered you, please do yourself a favour and don't look for it, it's like opening Pandora's box. Not an easy instrument to use, but 18x handheld is pretty special. I find it goes deeper and draws out more stars than the 10x42L. And lunar detail is good enough to keep me from dragging out my 10” dob. This morning I did a bit of birding with the 18s handheld, I could see two Galahs with the white feathered bodies and pink heads very clearly from over 500 meters away. You just don’t see colour so clearly at that distance on that size bird at 10x. The list of showing more details goes on... But then, you press the button* and suddenly you are able to see more. More detail, simple as that. And I guess this is what binoculars were invented for in the first place. I had read that the view was a revelation: I couldn’t agree more. Seriously. It's just another level.

Earlier implementations took several seconds to stabilise the image and even then the resulting view was frequently afflicted with a ‘swimming’ sensation and reduced sharpness. Both Canon require you to constantly press the button whenever you want to make use of its IS function (to me it means 100 % of the time; that's why I use an IS device after all). Despite the body being the same, for some reason I find the 10x30 easier to use in this respect, I feel I'm less aware of the fact that I need to be pressing the button, with the 12x36 I feel I'm actively doing something, while with the 10x30 it feels as if the simple fact of grabbing the binoculars makes me inadvertently press the IS button. Given that I find the cases provided with both the 10x30 and 12x36 basically useless, I carry the 12x36 inside the case of an EL x32 or SLC x42 (it's the same). Noticeably larger than the other one, but at least it allows for a very comfortable "bandolier style" use while not using the binoculars. The strap (safety belt style) makes for a really comfy experience, even if you carry it for hours.

In the Canon 12x36 IS III, the image stabilises within one second and we were unable to get it to ‘swim’ even when we tried to induce this by deliberately vibrating the binoculars. While this makes it suited to everyday use, it’s not only the built-in image stabilization – as also used in Canon EF lenses for its camera range – that provides us with a sharp and clear view, but also a Super Spectra Coating to the glass.

I can totally relate to this experience. I find the 18x50 takes some effort to get the most out of them. However I find that there a few remedial actions one can take to improve the situation.I really like your comment about the IS being like and old friend you know well, and you know it's weak points and strengths (an when he/she can really get on your nerves). I feel the same about other devices or places and it's something I've learned to live with over time, but in this case maybe the mistake were my expectations.

Interesting topic about the Canon IS binoculars. I have had the 12X36 II for many years and enjoy using them. Just recently I took them to a Kiss concert in Vancouver. We had seats way high up in the bleachers quite far from stage. I focused in on Paul Stanley and I I could literally count the number of chest hairs LOL These binos are amazing! Undoubtedly for a professional who needs to do a survey or identify an object really far away, certainly it is the tool of choice, but for the amateur who also looks for the sense of pleasure while using the tool itself, I have my doubts (the same way you can use a car for years to go from A to B, and then there are people who enjoy the act of driving and collect cars). And I’m not even starting with the compromises of using a battery-powered device.When you hold the binoculars up to the light, the exit pupils appear perfectly round, with no cut-offs or grey segments, indicating that the prisms are fully sized and that the glass used has an appropriate refractive index. But brighter objects show a lot of problems. There seems to be some astigmatism and lots of CA. All I saw of Mars was a colorful irregular shaped blob. I put fresh lithium AA's in both, and compared at close distances, far distances, in bright and low light. carefully compared them with Meopta’s excellent Meostar HD 12x50s by looking for the faintest stars I could Marrying a generous 12x magnification to a respectable 36mm sized objective lens, Canon’s middle-of-range image stabilized Porro prism binocular purports to offer a clear, flat view from edge to edge, while being ideally suited to bird watchers and sports fans.

Levels of CA that make watching birds on a bright sky a pain (a 300 € contemporary roof with ED does better than this)I thought the stabilisation was excellent and really “snapped in” well and held it well. Better than the two 10x30ii examples I had tested. Due to its low weight it was a serious contender. It was the first to be eliminated however, because of narrow fov and the difference between 10x and 12x seemed minor. Also, the price point seemed to be in “no-mans land” compared to the 10x models. Nevertheless it left a positive impression. The narrow eyepiece barrels make it very easy to find the optimal position for your eyes. Champion coatings On my balcony I started testing the ISIII together with other two well known binoculars, both Porro and roof, the Nikon SE 10x42 (that the Canon is bound to replace as a long range/astro tool in my stable) and the Swarovski EL SV 8x32, that have been my main everyday choice for the last year. Both the Nikon and the Swarovski produce really pleasurable images full of detail, addictive, bright and sharp views of the world around you that give you a bigger sense of perfection, with less flaws than the Canon ISIII.
