Probably a question that has been asked hundreds of times before by other beginners. So apologies in advance.
Been strongly advised to focus from the outset on buying some good German binoculars. "Last a lifetime and the thing you spend 99 percent of your time looking through."
Looked at uttings websites and had a bit of shock at the price range. Was also even more surprised to find the Steiner navigator binoculars I use/abuse at work most days were supposed to be half decent.
So if you are starting out, what binoculars would you buy initially so that you would not have to upgrade in 3-5 years time?
As an example, if you thought about buying a 1000 quid S&B scope.. Should you be spending more than that on binoculars?
