Hi,
I would appreciate a little addvice on binoculars for sporting events and concerts. I have been looking
at vortex diamondback 8x28 and 8x32. Any addvice on these two or any others under $200 would be greatly
appreciated. Thank you. Bohunkid

HI

No need for the larger binocular unless you want to use it for some other activities. An 8x28 is still a touch bigger than the usual compact and will serve you well. It will be smaller, lighter and a bit more unobtrusive at those events. It would be my choice, especially at concerts.

Hi Joanie,
I recieved the vortex diamondback 8x28 but they didn't work for me. I couldn't hold them close to my eyes
or everything turned black. Had a real hard time looking thru them. I returned them and purchased the
nikon 8x25 prostaff atf. They seem much more forgiving with the eye placement and are very clear and
easy to focus. I will be happy with these. bohunkid<John>
