Re: minolta bino\'s
I echo what brianb said. Even the part about being from Utanbul! Check out the stats on the Swarovski before you buy anything else. The binos you are looking at are pretty good, but those Swarovski SLC's are built like sherman tanks, and the optics provide ultimate resolution! Price is an issue with them I know, but consider them an investment and scrimp on anything else! I lived off cup-o-noodles for lunch for one full year to buy mine and it was worth every stale noodle!
If it's not far, it's boring.
