Zoom binoculars do have their place for casual use, but it also true that zoom binoculars are inferior optically and mechanically to a fixed power binocular at the same magnification. Zoom binoculars also have a MUCH higher failure rate. Then too, if you plan to get the most out of a zoom, you will need to sacrifice some of those dollars for a tripod to steady them.
If you really want to make your dollar count, invest it in a fixed power binocular. If you need more than 10x, you should be looking at a spotting scope, not a zoom binocular.
