Just received a new roof prism 8x32 binocular. This is by far the b
best compact binocular I have ever come across. Brilliant optics no visible optical abberations very eye glasses friendly with hardly reduced F.O.V.
The shortest focusing distance you can imagen, a darling for bird watching, it weighs only one lbs. It is 4" wide and 3-7/8" high.

It has a 4mm exit pupil, more than enough for 98% of of hunting uses. Unless you hunt in total darkness.

They are water proof and nitrogen purged made in Japan. The optics from what I can tell are comparable to my 10x40 Leitz now Leica., and that is saying something. I think they would sell in the US for about $375 US in Canada $450 Can.

The scopes look like the Bausch&Lomb don't know what they cost. By the looks of these binocs they make good stuff. My friend has a dealership for the SHirstone line.

I've been packing a Nikon Monarch ATB 8x40 for several years, great optics at 20oz and hard to beat for the $250 they cost. They close focus for bird watching which is why I switched from a 6x30 Steiner which wouldn't. Add a bino harness and you don't even know they're on your chest!!! I've actually thought I forgot to put em on when out hunting, til I looked down and seen em!!! :)
