I don't think anyone has suggested that it would be "replaceable". We are just saying that under some circumstances we prefer the binocular instrument for at least two reasons.

I have a pair of Fujinon 16X70 that I use from my car, and they are much better and faster than a scope. I just rest them on a partly raised window. I only use them to augment my usual 10X42 when it...

There is always something "just around the corner" and doing what you are doing means that you never buy anything.

Choose one, plunk down your money, and use it.
