Looking for a 8x50 binocular

Postby scalkins on Tue Jan 20, 2009 7:28 am

Tried a friends 10x50 binocular and a little shakey. Looking for a 8 or 8.5 by 50 roof binocular for low light situations. Would like to limit cost to around 500 to 700 dollars. Looking for some recommendations

Thanks

You might wait just a little bit, Nikon is coming out with Monarch X, which is available in 8.5x45. There are some others in 8.5x, or were. Just have to search. Some people claim some benefit of 8.5x over 8x.
