Indawire, you are correct.
Of course, tightgroups has a point with Swarovski.
I’m creeping into the “buy once cry once” category with gun related optics and I have been pleased so far. That being said, I’m not ready to take the Swarovski plunge, just yet on the binocular end of the spectrum.
Basically, I’m looking for a decent pair of binoculars for all around use in the 8-10 power range, in a small to medium body size range. I’m comfortably willing to spend up to $300 and uncomfortably willing to go higher. I will also be picking up some less expensive binoculars to be placed in the cars.
