It’s truly a game of how much you want to spend. I just ordered a set of Maven 10x50’s. Hear lots of great reviews from these binos. Glass seems fantastic for the price.

Budget is important but also intended use which you don't hear as much with binos as you do scopes. Basically, open country or thick woods and what distances. I live in TN and hunt thick wooded areas. I have a pair of leupold yosemites in 6x30 which work perfectly for my situation. Not so good for glassing out west where you are trying to determine size at 1000yds or more.

I just picked up the Maven B.1 10x42 and they are excellent. They work really well in low light. I am pleased with them.

Been quite pleased with the Leupold Mckenzie binoculars. My wife got the for me for my birthday. They are very clear and draw light very well. I have the 10x42 version but they also come in 10x50 as well. They are lite and come with a very nice padded case. The neck strap is very comfortable as well.

While I was with a friend last week I saw a deer about 600 Yards away conversation went like this.
Friend with Sawaro 10X42 SLC's: I can't tell if it has antlers or not.
Me Leupold Santiam 5 HD : it's a 4X5
Friend: my eyes are getting old and I can't see so good.
Me: Try these, handing Bino's
Friend: Oh, it is a 5X6 with a little Kicker for the 5th!
Love my Leupolds!

For low budget, I can attest to the Diamondback's toughness, mine are used on the boat in AK during the summer on the flybridge where they get abused, and still work fine for hunting. Certainly not high dollar good, but definately usable.
