    Have a look at Minox new - good glass for the money and you may even get some change!

    Thanks Eric, i had a look on sportsmans - they have minox bv 8x42 for 130 reduced from 300. Are these decent glass or would it have to be the higher spec models?

    Cheers Rob

    I think you'll find plenty of support for these on this forum - for your budget, you should be able to get a pair of the next spec up, if you want to spend it all. The BV's are very good for the money. I'd also have a look at Steiner Bino's as a comparable product - also well received.

    Hi Rob,

    For the price and quality I think you'll find Minox very hard to beat, (BV or BL models)

    PS. I know Frank use's HG's and rates them highly.

    buy them at that price!

    i've got a pair and they are spot on, ok they're not up to the standard of swaro or zeiss but imo the clarity is the best you are going to get for your budget.

    See if you can track down a pair of the Minox BL 8x42 MIG (Made in Gemany). I got a pair for under 250 and am really pleased with them. Before purchase I checked with Minox and they confirmed they will warrant all MIG binos for 30 years which adds to the appeal at that price.

    Cheers,

    Andy
