I bought the Bushnell 8X40 H20 binoculars as a backup to my Swift Audubon 8.5X44 while they were being repairs. I got them because they were inexpensive, had good reviews, and had appropriate apertures for birding. I was very surprised at the excellent quality of the lens, the easy of adjusting and using them. They are a bit heavy for their size but I like them.
Pros: Easy adjustment, fog proof, water proof, surprisingly good optics
Cons: A bit heavy
