    Have to agree I have some lecia 10x50 and they are excellent glasses but they are heavy if I was buying again it would be 8x42

    8x better for woodland, 10x better for hill IMO so depends what kind of stalking you do

    Buy the 8x fella much lighter,if your going on the hill and got the loot buy a drawscope as well!

    I have a pair of Swaro 10x42 SCL's but wished I had got the 8x42 version as most of my stalking is done in forests.

    10*42 but it's down to you what suits best they are heavy but at first/last light I'd never be with out them.

    8x good for most situations be it woodland or hill if you own only one pair of good bino's this is the one

    Definately for an all round hunting binocular 8x42 is the one to go for
