Re: 8x or 10x binos?

I used Leupold 9x35's for years and now use Leica 10x50. 10x is great for longer range, but for the range you describe out to 500 yards I'd go with 8x for the larger field of view. I notice that 10x is a little too much when scanning for game at short to medium range.

    Being mostly a whitetail hunter I lean towards the 8's. I do lots of low light work and find that there s little better light gathering. Also, i like the larger field of view.
