There are actually three companies that will repair a 30 year old glass, Zeiss, Swarovski and Leica. Parts for a 30 year glass as Lee has stated is the problem. Prisms/lens etc.

I am with Lee on this, an 8X30 or an 8X32, why? I know some premium glass 8X32s are large for some, SV, EDG, but the 8X25 Zeiss is the best pocket now hands down, get one of those if a 8X32 is too...

Anymore than 15X, might as well go APM and use interchangeable Eye pieces. For that other sport, use a scope and a 10X or 12X. 18X seems like a fad to me, it would never replace a scope.

Andreas is correct, increased magnification is necessary to decipher the rings of Saturn. With the right atmospheric conditions 30X will do the job.

Jack,

I think the Sightron 8X32 or the Fujinon KF 8X32 are for the money the best buy out there, at least in 8X32.
I tried the Fujinon large roofs in 12X60, 15X60 and I was impressed with the...

In the last few years I have looked at low priced binoculars in the 8X format and have found that if one is looking to spend the lowest amount of $$ these two come to mind.

But panning with the EDG is sublime and to me a more realistic view, not to mention great glare control. For my type of viewing during the day I prefer the EDG in 8 and 10X42, just my opinion.

I know Nikon has the WX 7X50 and 10X50, but if Nikon had made the SE line with 8 and 10x with a larger aperture say 8X45/10X50 I would have used them extensively (better value $$ wise). The 12X50 is...
