I figured this would be a good place to get some thoughts on various binos. 7x50 is obviously the standard. I’ve used loads of different brands but only recently started paying attention to names (now that I finally have to buy my own). I remember the standard Bushnells as being so-so, West Marines were garbage. I’ve used Steiner’s “marine” model and had good build quality and optics. ~$200-$400 seems like the price range where you get decent quality but won’t be devastated if they’re dropped. (it happens…) Nikons and Fujinons seem like my alternatives right now, but I can’t remember if I’ve used them or not and don’t know how they stack up against the Steiners.
It would be great to hear which pairs you all have had the best experiences with. Thanks!
