Bushnell Natureview roof 8x42 or Bushnell Trophy roof 8x42

I must buy a binoculars, but I must choose between the Bushnell Natureview roof 8x42 and the Bushnell Trophy roof 8x42. What do you believe which is better for the birdwatching? Thanks

Regards

I think they are much the same, slightly different FOV. But I don't recall them well, are they bright enough, guys?

The Trophy has a much better built quality and will last you longer.
Tey have more or less similar optics, but the Natureview is plastic junk.

The 10x is a bit more trouble to find a good bin than the 8x, so I would hold off guessing on this till someone has some experience to make a better call.

Actually, I have the sportsman

Don't get those. I give them to my kids, as they tend to drop things. You can see deer and stuff like that, not little birds in dark bushes.
