    Steiner Binos are of very high quality and of excellent value.
    Just check before you buy that you are getting the water proof model. There is a bunch on the market that came from an over run on a military contract for a country who have little rain, hence the binos are not water proof, but are only water resistant. I found this out to my peril. Make sure you only buy those that are nirtogen purged.

    For a little bit more money, also consider the Nikon ATB monarchs. Been extremely happy with mine and I would suspect optical clarity to be better then the Steiners. The Nikons are waterproof.

    Another great buy are the Nikon EX Exteme binos. Just picked up a 12X50 and they are superb. The fact that I paid $145 is crazy. Will become my moderate to long range binos. A bit big but not very heavy.

    No field experience yet as they are only a few weeks old.
