I’m using Steiner HX 10x42. I had used their Predator model for years, but had a focus issue. They were not babied in any sense, but Steiner sent me a the new HX which was priced a fair bit more. Love dealing with people who know how to take care of people.
Brand is not a great way to narrow down the search.
