Porro vs roof
Thank you for your interest in www.OpticsPlanet.com
Depth of field is a concern for specific applications such as butterfly watching and some types of birding where you will be observing objects at close range (where depth of field is most critical) that are constantly moving. Depth of field will not be a factor for a general use binocular or a travel binocular.
Your choice of porro or roof prism should be determined by which feels best in your hand. Some people prefer the feel of a porro, but many others prefer the feel of a roof prism. Either prism type in a quality binocular will serve you well as a travel binocular or general use binocular.
