Any thoughts on affordable sub $800.00 12x power bino's? Viper, Leupold Bx4, Kowa..? I know this subject has been covered pretty good here and on other sites. Thanks

I have the vipers in the 12x50s. Bought them off a member here that had just had them refurbished for $450 and couldnít be happier. No experience with the others but Iím a big fan of pretty much all Vortex products.

The theme has been covered for hundred times already but I was at the same situation and simply asked for help. I like ATN brand for optics. Look on As a part of ATN's Smart-HD optics line of digital devices, these binoculars feature the Obsidian user interface for the most user friendly experience possible. Even the shape was built with the user in mind, that's why it's made as ergonomically as possible, with your feedback. Very good thing, and price is not high!

Another vote for the vortex. I went with the diamondbacks, instead of the viper, only cause I had limited cash and had to pick up a few new things.

The vipers are awesome imho.
