Re: Steiner Nighthunter Binoculars
I took my binoc's out at night...Please note that we have street lights around. But I got to the darkest possible place and was looking at things in the dark and was quite please.
I did a side by side comparison with an older set of Pentax PCF 12X50's. The 12X50's did gather more light, but not much more...
For the size, weight. The 8X28's are perfect for hunting applications..If you have a long stalk/walk. It seems to me to be the best compromise.
Like you, I was leaning towards the 32 and 43mm obj...when I compared the cost of the 28mm, then the quality of the optic's. I was impressed. I could have gotten the Pentax 8X32 for more money but I did not think they were better.
If you get a chance, find a pair and take a look. Most of the guys that have looked through mine, instantly said they wanted a pair.
