The ignore feature is useful, and it works well when needed. ;)

It is too bad someone comes on the site and wants to dominate.

You are trying too hard, any indexing is really useless and really not helpful

That does help confirm it, back to the original question posted, and the answer is that any
quality size 8x32 can serve as your one and only, one and done, binocular.

Nice find, I also looked through the list and the biggest bargain is the one mentioned the MHG 10x42.

This binocular is very good, and for many users can be a one and done.
