After having my van broken into over new year, I have had to buy a replacement pair of binoculars (amongst other things).
I finally settled on a pair of Barr & Stroud ED 8x42 open hinge with bak 4 prisms. waterproof with a 10 year gte and weigh 660g.
field of view is 114mts at 1000mts. (swaros 8x42 are 133mts at 1000m)
optical clarity is really good
Got them at optical express in swindon (on e bay) retail £300 there price £200
worth a look if you are in need of some binos,
First time out sunday Spotted a fallow buck in thick woods no problem.
