Minox BV 8x42 BR Arctic Hunter Review

Ordered these binoculars "Minox BV 8x42 BR Arctic Hunter" from Doug at Cameraland for $150 and I am very pleased.

Testing has been limited but initial response is very positive. My main use will be deer hunting from 0-600 yds. I just stepped out the back door 30 minutes after official sunset and could still see clearly at 200+. We can hunt until 30 minutes after official sunset, so that was my primary objective. I also held up a burris ffII 4.5-14x42 and these binoculars were clearer than the scope at 8 power and about the same or a little better at 4.5. I have 4 of the ffII's are working great for my hunting. I've never not been able to take a shot because it wasn't gathering enough light.

I know these minox's and burris ffII's may not be up to some people's standards, but I am pleased and expect many deer to fall with them in the field.

By the way, I also considered the monarch atb and the vortex diamondback's, but Doug recommended these to be a better value for the price.
