In reference to Eric’s request, I recommend the Swarovski EL 8.5x42 as the best on the market.
Arguably the last binocular you will ever need to buy again, it is so good.
Only advice is to never buy online, but always go to a local reputable dealer like Wild Birds Unlimited in Gardiner, WA. They have the EL 8.5x 42 and other Top End binocs in stock. Call 360-797-7100 on availability.
You always want to try out whatever you buy, put it to your face and work with the ergonomics of the particular brand you are testing. If you buy online, one never knows what may be shipped to you. Just ask USA Swarovski, Zeiss or KOWA and they will educate you on the “grey market”, of stolen or remanufactured binocs on the web.
Yours for the Birds n’ the Bees
