I'm looking at getting a new set of binos. I'm looking at either the Burris landmark II 10 x 42 or the minox BF 10 x 42 BR I also understand that Nikon has some binos in that same price range. What say yal? Thank's, Brad
I would consider Vortex. We sell optics at the sporting goods store I work at. I think that you get the best bang for the buck with Vortex. I have a Vortex Viper 12X42 and love them. I have 3 of their scopes and a spotting scope from Vortex. Nice bright glass with an unconditional guarantee and good price.
Out of the two questioned I would go Minox. Cabelas has a unconditional 90 trial on their optics I believe which is a huge plus for the real world. I have a older pair of leupold cascades that were amazing for the money, since replaced with Minox HG's. If the new cascades are anything like my old one's for $300 I would pull the trigger all over again. I once bought 4 different rifle scopes from cabelas to compare side by side in real life conditions over a couple of days and then returned the 3 I did not like. If you have the ability to do something like that I would strongly suggest it. More and more glass companies are putting out quality glass at lower prices and some are truly diamonds in the rough for the price.
