Re: Binoculars

Many people buy 7x50 but I find them too difficult in a small boat.

Anyways look for maximum brightness, minimum weight and plenty of robustness. All this implies price.

We have Nikons WP 7x50 and they are outstanding quality and value BUT as I said a bit too heavy and to strong for me. So I could get another, smaller pair, or a quality mono.

Re: Binoculars

I have Steiner and Fujinon Technostabis 14x. I go to the Fujinon every time as a first choice. I've got to say how impressed I am by the Fujinon. With the stabilisation feature more like a power of 20x. Just awesome. I can see my neighbour's password as they log on to private banking. If only I were of a dishonest disposition... Not to mention the perving possibilities. They burn up batteries though
