Steiner Rallye Binoculars
I want a good pair for general outdoor use ove some distance with good resolution. What would you suggest in that there appear to be good sales on Binoculars at this time. Are Nikon aws ggod as the Steiner?
No, definitely a porro prism, basically an economy grade Steiner Military Marine. Ignore lists prices when shopping for optics. No one in the history of optics has ever sold anything at list price. It's all marketing.
For $300, if you want a roof prism, get a Nikon Monarch 10x42 or any of a dozen good choices at that price point
For the basics on binocular construction and features is easy to understand terms, see my article at How to Understand Binoculars
