I was curious to see if anyone has used or reviewed these bino's, specifically the ED2 models in 10x43. I'm biting the bullet and giving my dad my zeiss conquests as he is getting older and can't hardly see out of his cheap ones, which he will never replace. I'm know they will never compare but they seem to be getting rave reviews but mostly by birdwatchers. The company is based out of Beaverton so maybe I'll give them a call to see if they have any "unbiased" details. I just need something to get me by for the next few seasons until I replace my good ones. Any opinions appreciated. Thanks.................
