Best value from Oberwerk. I have their 15 x 70 for astronomy and rock concerts (you can almost read the musician's playlist. These 8x32 for bird watching. Excellent close focus, eye relief and exit pupil. You can spend twice as much, but you won't get any more binocular. Oberwerk is a great value.
Pros: great roof prism optics equally great price.
Cons: cheesy strap
