HI,
I am a birder and i settled with nikon action ex 8x40.
Had i taken a right choice under $200.

Please comment on optics of Nikon action ex 8x40 with $300 roof designs.
Thanks.

Hi

In terms of optics, the EX will compare nicely with $300 roofs. You will give up handling, ease of focusing and some durability, compared to those roofs, but if budget is a concern, the Nikon AE is a best bang for the buck in optics

Speaking of "bang for the buck", you've got to take a look at the Leupold Yosemite 6x30, 8x30. Fantastic optical quality for under $120! Compact size, fits any age user.

Birding, I don't think you settled at all, I think you made a great choice.
I kow Nikon is coming out with a Brand New ProStaff 7 model of Bino. this year.
I am not sure when exactly it is due in the states but it has great clairity with fully mulit-coated lenses.
I think it's going ot be a real hit with outdoor enthusiasts and hunters alike.
My name is Bart, I am a longtime hunter and I am here to answer any questions on Nikon hunting optics you may have. I will also be sharing new products and specials on occasion.
