    don't know much about 8x. I am very impressed with 10x43 Zen-ray ED2 I just received yesterday. I am sure if the 8x is as good as the 10x, it will be one hell of binoculars

    Default minox

    You can get them from the sponser of this section. The clarity and quality equals ones that cost twice the price and that's not an exaggeration!

    Leica. I waited 20 years until I could afford a pair, I wish I had just been foolish and bought them long ago, I missed so much....

    I second purchasing them from Doug, the guy is simply over-the-top on customer service.

    I have Nikon Monarch 8 x 42, bought from Doug at Cameraland. Great glass for the money. Have been very happy with them.

    Default I'd 2nd that Minox recommendation

    I'm happy with the Minox 10 by 42 HG binoc I got from Doug last Christmas..Mid-price range of about $570.00

    If you budget is a bit higher I'd suggest looking towad those Swarofski SLC or EL in 8 by 32 of 10 by 40
