    Interested in views/facts on what the Steiner predator filter add/takes away

    I have leica 8X30 which are wonderful but too expensive to lie on and drag through the dirt... which I tend to do multiple times a day in my mid range varminting in open terrain.

    I bought a 10X26 pocket size Steiners predators which have taken the abuse well but have limitations particularly at dusk.

    In the fullness of time I may change to the 8X30's but wondering wha the tradeoff of loss of light versus extra animal spotting capability really is.

    Obviously I have the predator lenses but have not been able to make back to back comparisons

    I'd appreciate any infromation?
