Just came back from visiting a mate,who's recently bought a pair of Minox 8x44(I think) binos.
Now I'm very fussy,I use swarovki ELs,but these really were super,for only £400. Also they were giving away a pair of 8x25 pocket bins worth £99. I didn't get a chance to give them a real going over,but in the low light I used them in,I was very impressed. Build quality and feel seemed very good,the image wasn't completely flat towards the edges,but for the price these really are worth considering. I could get more info on where he bought them etc if anyone's interested. Cheers
