Had the misfortune to drop my Swaro Bright 8.5 x 42 bins last week! They have now gone on holiday to Austria for repair!
Can't be without a good set so I thought I'd buy a spare pair to tide me over until the Swaro's return. Read lots of reviews and eventually went for a set of Minox BV 8.5x42's which are the mid-range version and cost £149.99 from Amazon. Took them out today and was completely amazed at their quality and performance! Considering they cost 10% of my Swaros, I reckon they are pretty much as good! If you are looking for some good binos on a budget, then look no further! I am going to look at the higher price ones next and may well sell the swaros! Very impressed!
