I am thinking Koshkin did read every post here on this thread, did you?
For some here who have experience with optics, the idea is to offer advice that will
aid others in making a purchase.
 
Taking into consideration some of the thoughts here, I do realize "Blind as a Bat"Wink
does make me think about your ability. 
 
Stay around, maybe you will learn something about binoculars.

Minox +3 (3-D that is)... Birdwatcher put me on to them I think...  They are perfect for the price and function durability is not an issue with them.

They pop-up on the sample list in perfect shape from time to time...

Claiming the Nikon 7-15's are better than a $1,000.00 pair of binoculars is like claiming a tasco World Class is better than a Swarovski Pro-Hunter.


The Tasco is not better??? Is it closer to being equal??? Oh maybe closer to AV series then???


I do agree very very very strongly with Rich on one point. DRUM ROLLLLLLLLLLLLL!!!!!

It's a good thing none of us are perfect.

About Tascos being better than Swarovski:  If one is trying to see detail at a distance with a scope which does not have A.O. or side focus and another does, the one without will loose out in a side by side comparison.  Try it sometime.
 
I think most of you readers have trouble with reading comprehension.  I think I posted that I started with the $1000 binocs and compared them side by side outside the store until I found the best for my eyes.

 

It is what I suggest everyone does.  If they can’t do that, then maybe they can work with an online company which will let them return something if it is not what they want.

 

Did God allow?  The only place I can find the word “allow” in one of my Bibles is in Judges 3 where he allowed some of the Canaanites to remain because some of the Israelites had not experienced war.

Understandable, hopefully...

The very least that you could do is post a nice photo of a Zeiss 15x60 B/GA. Bandito

Some info about my Grey 25 x 100 binos.
 
The binocular production history: The binoculars were made by Feinapparate Bau (flm). This company was founded in 1939, and was fully owned by Carl Zeiss Jena
until May 1945.
The first 25x100 models were marked ‘Carl Zeiss’. Then marking was changed to ‘blc’, and after that was changed to ‘rln’. The last production of this model was
marked ‘flm’. The production of 25x100 flm began in 1944 in Werk Thurn – Teplice in the Czech Republic at present time.
The 25x100 was designed to be mounted on a large rangefinder to locate night flying aircraft. The binocular was used at the experiments with the V1 and V2, to
follow a trajectory of the missiles V1 and V2.
It was concidered to be one of the finest binoculars ever built. The real field of view of this instrument is 3.6 degrees, with an apparent filed angle of 90 degrees. The
binocular has a very high light transmission, which gives a lot brighter picture then the ‘kqc’ Schneider 25x105.
This extremely high light transmission of the binocular provides a wonderful possibility to observe the sky at night. In July 1992, the magazine ’Sky & Telescope’
published an article about members of the Czech Astronomical Society, who discovered 18 comets, from 1946 to 1959,using 25x100 binoculars, produced in the
Czech Republic, by Carl Zeiss Jena, during the WWII.
The glasses are fully coated. It has built in neutral density filters.

I have to agree with Ilya that the Swift Audobon 8.5x44 model 820 are good porros.  If you get the recent ones they are weather proof as well.  There is some trouble with the bridge being slightly weak but I don't really have much trouble with that.  A Better View Desired (I think) called it the poor man's Swarovski.

I've tested them a few times against the Swarovision 8.5 and while the Swaro is better the difference isn't that great and the view is almost as good with the Swifts.  The Swift does have some problems though.  Eye relief is kind of small and some people seem to have a problem with it but I haven't.

The pair I have was made from when the daughter of the founder still owned the company.  She sold off the binocular part and later models were lighter.  They quit making them for a while but now they are being made again with a slightly different look.  I don't know how they compare to the previous models.

Well, that's probably more than you cared to know about that model of binocular but there you go.

Chad

Just curious, does anyone have any experience with the Sightron SII 8x42 binoculars.  They apparently are being closed out.  All of the Sightron products that I own are made in Japan and I just do not want to buy anything made in China.  Does anyone know where this model is made?  A while back I contacted Sightron and at that time they said everything they sold was made in Japan, but you know how things change.  I gave my son a pair of essentially new Olympus porros and now this discussion has made me re-think my decision.  The Minox BD line is heavily discounted and I mean heavily and would be well worth the money, but at half that price if the Sightron is close to as good and made in Japan, why not.
