Thread: Top end Binoculars

    Top end Binoculars

    I'm on the hunt for a pair of top end binoculars, non range finding.

    I will consider Swarovski, Leica or Zeiss ( in that order) either x8 or x10 magnification.

    The objective lens to be a minimum of 42 diameter and maximum of 56.

    What's on offer?

    Others have mentioned porro prism binoculars. I have a pair of 1998 manufacture Swaro porro prism 7x42 green rubber armoured binoculars, which (to my eyes) are brighter than any roof prism at first and last light. They can be bought brand new for about 800. Old fashioned yes.... but lightweight, compact and optically superb.

    Cheers guys I'm now looking towards a pair of Swarovision 10x42 or maybe the SLC 8x56.

    However also tempted by the Ultravids. . . Decisions decisions.

    I was hoping maybe someone was upgrading to the range finders and selling their others.

    That's the trouble a can't see them to shoot them
    Although a did hear about 'someone' putting two bullets into a 'deer' in the middle of a clear fell, which turned out to be a deer shaped tree stump

    Shoulda gone to spec savers.
