Thread: Not sure which Binos to get ?

  1. #1

    Not sure which Binos to get ?

    ​Bought a pair new Swarovski SLC 10x42's which I've used a couple of times - the problem is they are to nice to use or rather cost to much for me to feel happy taking them out.
    I'm after a pair of 8x42 - but not sure what to get.

    I've seen these as they are ones that I've used a work, I know there made in Japan under sub-contract but not sure by who:-

    What do other members recommend ???


    Kind Regards

    For years now I have had Bushnell H2O 8 x 42 very pleased with them. I think they are around £120 now.

    Minox have some fantastic binos. Same Schott glass as Zeiss, just without all the coatings, and well worth a look
    Sako 75 6.5x55mm-Z6i 3-18x50. MauserM12 .308-SIII 6-24x50. Beretta 690 III Field 12b.

    Absolutely correct, take a look at the Minox HG's 8x43, superb pair of bino's.

    Just use the Swarovskis, that's what they are for.
    why spend more money when you have an excellent pair of binoculars already.
    Dont worry about using them as in a few years time you can send them back for a refurb if need be and it will probably cost you nothing.
    Enjoy the ones you have and keep the money in the bank.

    Steiner have good glass, I have a Minox spotter, which is excellent so no doubt their binos are too, heard decent reports about Physer, all mid budget.


    To be honest I use my Swaro LG as a monocular and dont use bins.....have done for last ten years with no issues in finding bambi.

    No point in having them if you don't use them. My Leicas are indispensible infact feel blind without them, they get covered in mud/dust and if so go in the sink for a wash, OK they don't look prestigne but the lenses are fine, they are working instruments and are designed as such. £1.5 k well spent.
