If you want get the most out of your €200, the Sightron Blue Sky 8x32 has earned a very good reputation on the forum.
IME/IMO the excursion 8x28 is far superior in actual use than the 8x25 minox. The minox is tiny though.
Also IME you will really have a difficult time finding a bino that is superior to (not just equal to) the theron LT / sightron SII 8x32's in the sub $250 range (200 euros).
I've made this offer before in PM, but if the euro-Birders are having trouble getting some bino's for a good price, you can buy a set of binos I have for sale, and if you overpay by the right amount, maybe I'll jsut "happen" to drop a brand new set of whatever else you want ordered from the US of A right into that same little ole shipping box . (Mods, is that OK to post?
