Formerly aI carried a pair of Pentax 8x42 DCF SP, formerly their best binos and still very good. Now I carry a Bushnell I Mile 10x42 ARC laser range finder binos. Pretty much the same quality as my Pentax but a bit heavier. I absolutely rely on them for scouting and, when I spot game, for rangefinding. I have them set to my cartridge ballistics and MRAD readout to match the MRAD reticles on my scopes. Unfortunately they have no angle compensation (except for archery mode). I chose 10x for western hunting where distances are fairly long. My dream binoculars are 10x42 Leica HD-B rangefinders. They have sensors for altitude (air pressure), temperature and angle. Plus you can use either Leica's 12 general cartridge ballistics tables to program them, like my Bushnell's. Or take the Micro-SD card out of them, put it in your computer and program it exactly to your rifle's ballistics, put the card back in the binoculars and all you need is windspeed to know hold-off B/C hold over-over is precisely calculated in MOA or MRAD, your choice.
