OUCH! Bummer. Porros are not better. Under 100 bucks or so you'll see better performance in a porro vs a roof, but after that, they're almost identical. Porros are still available for applications that don't put a premium on size. Auto focus is made for medium range only, not long ranges, and not short ranges. You'll get much better performance out of an adjustable binocular
. They are so easy to focus it's not even worth mentioning. 90% of all new binocs are roofs. The new Zeiss Conquest HDs
are excellent, and under a grand. Steiner Nighthunter roofs
are less. Down some more in price is the Bushnell Elite E2
, another really good roof.
