    Had the 8x42 for 6 yrs ,very good in bad light better than my s/bender 8x56 scopes I have on my deer rifles .i paid about 500 I think from a photography shop .mine could do with a service as I've worn the coating off the lenses a bit

    I have stalked with a guy who had some and they were far better than my Hawke frontiers. It wasn't twilight but we were under extremely dense fir which blocked out most light.

    I have a pair of 10 x 42s. They're the only bins I've owned, so can't compare them with others on a long term basis. I did once use them side by side with a top of the range Zeiss pair and they were similar, albeit the Kahles lost some colour definition a bit quicker than the Zeiss pair.

    In terms of comparison with scopes, my bins tend to run out of light slightly sooner than my scope, which is an 8 x 56 Hungarian S&B. If I can see it through the bins I know I'll be able to see it through the scope and hence a shot is still on. The scope lasts about another 5 mins (depending on conditions), so that's a good way round for me.

    Overall, I've been pleased with em and have not felt the urge to buy a pair of Swaro's (yet) although can't guarantee that I never will.
