I'm after some relatively inexpensive binos, after a fair bit of reading up I've decided that life would simply be impossible without ED lenses (despite me not evening knowing what these were a week ago).
Now the minox binos seem widely acknowledged as the 'best of the rest' behind the big three. But they don't produce any in the £200ish bracket with ED lenses.
I looked at the Bushnell legend ultra, which do appear great if a little beyond the £200 mark. I also looked at the Barr and Stroud 8x42 (series 4 are available for £149 on Amazon). Reviews are limited but generally positive, I then saw that they have their Savanna range in 8x56 for £177... This seems a very good deal for optical lenses in a size that you would assume would take in a lot of light at dusk and dawn.
Has anyone experience of these binos, or am I oversimplifying things and should just stick with their higher range series 4 in 8x42 or go for the Bushnell?
Many thanks in advance
