It is another amazing fact that so FEW hunters, sports spectators, concert-goers, etc feel that they don't NEED a great binocular to enhance their experience. I can't believe so many people spend so much money on tickets for their sports, sporting events, bird watching, watching the neighbors, watching wildlife, at the beach for real "eye-candy" watching, etc. without bringing their viewing up close and personal. Buy quality optics and use them. They pay for themselves in viewing enjoyment!!!!

Last summer I was hiking in the Smokies. I came to a little stream, sat on a rock in the middle of the stream, and spent about 20 minutes with my binocs, just viewing the water going around the rocks. I wasn't looking more than 20 yards away, but the binocs really enhanced the experience. Very relaxing.

I have the Merlins by steiner and for the 400 bucks i paid for them they are well worth the money. Another good brand for a bout 100 bucks less is the Alpen and they are worth every penny as they have burris glass i believe?
they are crisp and clear.
wouldnt take anything for the merlins.

Thanks watchmaker. I learned a thing or two about flashlights and now binoculars from you. I placed my order for the 8x42 Nikon ATB Monarch today. Should be here by the season. \:\)

I have a couple of binocs on classifieds right now, a compact Steiner Merlin and a Cabela's Euro(By Meopta). The Euro's are excellent, not to knock the Nikon Monarchs which I also have but looking through both of those simultaneously there is no comparison, the Euro's blow them away-brighter and sharper by far. Here's the link to my classified:
