"There is little about the GPO Passion HD 10 x 42 that I could fault. Indeed, I cannot recommend this instrument highly enough. Ergonomically and optically it just ticks all the boxes, and will delight anyone who uses it. Its robustness will undoubtedly  guarantee many hassle free years in the field, and the excellent European 10-year warranty will also put your mind at ease in the unlikely event that you hit a snag with it."  Review by Dr. Neil English

"I was fully expecting the view through the Passion HD to be good. I wasn’t quite expecting it to be up there with some of the best binoculars I’ve ever looked through. And yet, that’s where I found myself when I first raised the binocular to my eyes. Everything just pops with detail, and there’s a depth to the image that gives it a 3D feel reminiscent of high-quality porro-prisms."  Review by Calvin Jones for Ireland's Wildlife
