12x bino around 0.00
Really would recommend dropping down to a 10x. You will have a much greater selection. There is very little to gain in detail by going to a 12x over a 10x, but quite a lot to lose in terms of stability and field of view. What little extra detail you gain will be lost to unsteadiness, unless you support the binocular against some object or mount it on a tripod. To keep image brighntess on a par with a 42mm, most 12x binos also jump up to a 50mm lens, so you end up with a larger and heavier bino as well. Really a nothing to gain, everything to lose scenario. Your choice, though.
For a 12x, try the Leupold Olympic 12x50 or the Eagle Optics Ranger 12x50
