Re: Bino buying - performance factors - long

Give the Nikon EX action extreme porro binos a try. I have a pair of 12X50's and they fit all your high end stuff at least out to 1000m. Now check the price!!!

We may no longer have jobs but the overseas labour sure lets us live well on welfare.

Jeffbird,
Did you leave out Steiner binoculars on purpose? I have two pair, 8X30 military marine(about 20yrs old) and a new pair of 10X50 Predators that I like very much. I also have a pair of Swarovski SLC 8X42 that are just excellent.

No, not at all. As I tried to point out, once into the mid and upper tiers tiers there are many fine choices. My purpose was to to provide factors for each person to evaluate and make an informed and objective decision for themself based on actual performance rather than just based on a brand name.

Re: Bino buying - performance factors - long

jeffbird,
the first binos that I ever bought were Pentax, the reason that I purchased them was that they used ASAHI glass (I am in the glass buisness and ASAHI is the largest glass distributor in the world, so I figured they must be good. WRONG they were a pile of crap) I looked through every set of binos made and for me I Love my SWAROVSKIS. yes they cost a bit more but you only need one pair of bino's so why not have the best.???
