View can be obstructed if there is someone tall in front of you (picture taken before the row in front of me sat down!) and a little difficult to see details from this far up (binoculars not necessary but wouldn't hurt)
Seats here are just excellent. No reason to go any closer. Only issue is that the slope isn't steep enough and if you have a tall person in front of you, you have an obstructed view. Shame, because otherwise it would have been perfect.
