Sherri and all,

Here are two known-name bins that were best-rated under $100. The
wide-angle feature is good for someone who isn't used to binoculars and
might have trouble aiming bins on a target.
The links are to the items on B&H Photo, which I have used many times. They
have a great customer rating. Hope this helps.

Bushnell Legacy 8x42 Wide-Angle:
I have a pair of Bushnell's that are pretty close to these that I use as a
secondary pair when my better ones aren't handy.

Nikon Aculon A211 8x42 Wide-Angle:

Take care and Good birding,
Dave DeReamus

My sister is finally wanting to spring for her own pair of binoculars,
but only wants to spend $100. She knows she can't get much for that,
but that's the budget. Can someone recommend anything that won't be
too disappointing? She can identify a few birds and isn't interested
in becoming a better birder, just using for curiosity, and probably to
try to describe things to me so I can identify them!

I haven't bought bins in many years and am out of the loop. Reply
offline if you have suggestions, and thanks!
