What a fantastic place. I've been there 4 times, and each time took an 8x32 and it worked great. On safari in Namibia, there is not the premium placed on low light viewing that there is over here. ...

OK. We'll agree to disagree on the Cabelas warranty. You do not have to register your purchase with Cabelas to get the warranty. They have no idea who owns it.
