    Also saw the Steiner Safari Pro 8x22. Both are in the $100 price range.

    Pentax DCF MC II 8x25

    My friend carried them sheep hunting in the Brooks last year. Excellent small binos. I carried some William Optics 8x25's that are nice but the Pentax are better IMO and I used them side by side. Can be had on sale for just over 100 bucks. I have a Pentax PF 65 spotter and Pentax 10x43 DCF SP binos. Excellent glass, lifetime warranty. I may buy some of these little ones as well.

    These are probably worth checking out as well. Pentax 8x25 DCF SW or the Pentax DCF LV 9 x 28
