    Im looking into getting a new pair of binoculars. I have it narrowed down to a few that I think would be good for the money, and what I need them to do. These all run from $730 to about $830.

    Minox BL 13X56 BR
    Vortex Razor 12X50
    Zeiss Conquest 12X45 BT

    Which would you choose, and why.

    Thanks for your sugestions.

    I would choose the ones that MY (your) eyes liked best. If you havent already tried them all, you need to. You will hate some and love others.

    Eyes are like opinions. No two the same.

    Get the Minox 15x58's that Doug from cameralandNY is advertising for $549. I paid almost $1100 for mine 2 years ago from another New York camera store and I L.O.V.E. them! (By the way, I'm not a fool, I shopped hard and $1100 was the best price at the time. The Sportsman's Warehouse down the road has a pair under the counter right now marked for $1,049).

    I think they're worth every penny of the $1100 I spend and now can't believe that they're available now for 1/2 price. I know this wasn't one of your choices but I'm sure Doug would let you try them and take care of you if you weren't satisfied.

    My 2cents.
