Re: Leica Binocs, 8, 10, or 12x50 BNs

The bino adapter for the Leicas stays attached to my tripod head qick detach piece and also straps down my Leopold 12-40x60 spotter very fast so it's all I use for both, kind of worked out great for me. It takes about 5-10 seconds to switch between the two.

My father likes the 10x50's too but he hunts out of a buggy and doesn't do much walking anymore. Really I used a pair at the range a couple of months back and swore they were 10x42 but turned out they were 10x50, not much difference but I never had them around my neck for a while either.

Good luck. Don't cheat yourself which ever ou go with, grab a tripod adapter for it too. The Leica adapter will work on about any of them you choose if an adapter isn't offered for your model.

    Sheldon, The 8X Leicas are indeed the same size and the 8X have a HUGE field of view even compared to the already generous 10X ones. If you have a spotter on hand the 8X binos will serve you probably even better if alot of viewing is done under a mile or so, which mine is 90% of the time. Low light viewing will also be a bit brighter too. If I had to do it over 8X42 would be my all around choice.

    I use Nikon 12 x 50 Action series. These cost around $115 and are very good glasses. In fact, for the price, I'd say they are the best out there. I've had guys say there $500 Steiners were clearer but in a side by side comparison, there was no difference. Check them out before making your decision.
