I'm looking hard at the new Bushnell Fusion ARC 1600 binocular with range finder. I have several good 10x binoculars already and am considering the 12x50 instead of the 10x42 because of my new interest in long range shooting/hunting. My questions are: Is the increased magnification beneficial enough to warrant an extra $200-300? Can the 12x be hand- held (bracing it of course) stable enough to function well? Any other comments or input are welcomed.
