They may look funny but, I can see things through these that you cannot see with Swarovskiís. They are on another level that ordinary binoculars can only dream of. Never let anyone else look through them or you will never see them again. I'm serious. I was going to order up a new set of EL's as I hunt and shoot alot with guys who use Leica's and Swarovski's and they always ask to use mine to confirm what they think they see through theirs.

From this outfit you get free 3 day shipping. After the rebate they are 275.00.
They are the Canon 10x30IS
The only draw back is you canít go swimming with them. They do make a waterproof set but that will blow your budget. When it comes to clear optics Canon might know something. I'm sure I have heard that name before somewhere.
