Am in a similar boat to probably a number of members and currently looking for some new bins.. Quite taken by ZEISS but possibly more by the name. I did find these
Barr Stroud Series 5 ED WP 8X42 FMC Binoculars
and the reviews seemed good for the series 4 but also tempted by some Minox BV for £150 or Prostaff 7S for about the same.
I think more swayed by the Barrs though but couldn't find much info on the series 5's
Anyone have any experience of these? Looking to spend about 200 for stalking mainly Roe.
