What I want to know is, will new binos impress me or not.
Of Coarse new Binoculars will impress you All the Leupold Binos from the Cascades upwards are good and their New McKinley BX 4s are are durposed to be the Dogs Dangley Bits
As I have stated Else where Once you get into certain Brands and Price Range it the Boils down to the Name you want because the Human Eye cant Tell the Difference Because as Many people have said and Know that most Brands have their Lenses made at the same Place, I would Put my Leupolds up against anyother brand and the fact that they are Mil-Spec Rated Tells me that they are good, I would not Sell them for 10x what I paid for them Because I have almost got my Kit the way I want it,
Vortex are getting a very good rap at the moment and Bushnell have been winning all the top prize's for the last 2-3 years or more, The thing with Swarovki, Lieca and Ziess is alot of users buy them By their Rep and because their Mates have got them and for Snob Value but the Truth is Most Peoples eyes could'nt tell **** from Clay and Our eyesight starts to go south after we hit out mid 30s, The Point I am trying to make is with all High end gear the Quality is Very Very close and as I said theres a cut off point where our eyes just cant tell the difference and it will be Brand and Features that will make you happy,
Hope this helps,, Johnl
