12x or 15x binos? 12x Euros on sale now

My only experience is with 8x binos and see the need for a higher magnification top quality tripod bino, I always wanting to see the details on the next ridge over! The 8x just can't do it. The 12x50 Euros are on sale now at 799, I will be using these in the Southwest US on deer, antelope and elk hunts. I am a little reluctant to go with a 12x as the magnification might be too low.

I think if you're looking for "all around" binos the 12 power would be better than the 15's...only because the 15's really need something to hold them steady. The 12's you can get away holding them free-hand. The 15's are hard to hold steady when not using them for spotting game without a tripod or window.
