You might want to check on Vortex while you're at it. Here's a review I did of the Minox and Razor a while back.

Re: Minox Binoculars good glass or what?

Well guys I've got a dog in the fight now. The artical "BIG EYES" does these 15's some real justice and BIG MEANS REALY BIG! These bino's are 2X the size of my 10X42's. At dark today I could see under trees that I could not see with 10X42's. I thought they were prity good bino's but the Minox is clearly a better set of glasses. Bill Maylor

I have a pair of 15 x 58 Minoxs that I've been using for 2 years. I probably spot 40 to 50% of the critters I see with them. I love them up one side and down the other. They're too big to use without a tripod but once you get them stabilized they're great. Easy on your eyes and lots of detail. They're big and heavy but once you figure out that eyestrain is nearly eliminated by peering through these glasses, you won't mind packing them.

Bill and Cross,
You guys made me do it.............seriously, I was looking at getting these bins for a while, and at $550 at CameralandNY I just couldn't pass. This price is good for only as long as the stock holds out, so I just ordered them. Thanks for the "push."
