The more magnification, the more and further you can see. Probably need to decide where you will do most of your birding. Inside woods and such I suspect the 8X is best. Looking at shorebirds and other long-distance birds would need the 10x.

I have been doing a lot of research on binoculars lately and spent quite a bit of time at Cabela’s testing highly rated bins against a visual acuity grid. I have selected the Vortex Viper HD but am still wrestling with whether to get 8X or 10X. I saw many of both in use at the swallow-tailed gull gaggle the last couple of days. I would very much like to hear from people who own both sizes about which they prefer to use and why.
