    Hi there

    I know these are an older bino but how good are they in low light stalking situations?

    Will they be good for a first set of binos etc.

    Thanks

    I started out using a pair as I had them already. You probably won't do better for 75 as they are better than any sub 150 new binos I have ever looked through. But if you have more money to spend you wouldn't go wrong buying some that you will never need to upgrade. Or something in between with 42mm objectives (e.g. Minox).
    I keep my Zeiss Jenoptem 8 x 30 in the car now so I always have something to hand (and not too expensive to lose if the car gets broken into) but have Swaro 7x42SLC binos in my roe sack for all stalking trips.

    I have a set of 7x50 that I used for several years for stalking. The 8x30 will not be quite so bright at first and last light but should be good in most circumstances. The quality of the glass is very good and they are strongly built. The only reason I changed was to go lighter and rubber armoured.

    I'll vouch for these - used a pair for years in 8x30, low light performance is excellent. You won't beat them without spending a lot of money!
