I’ve had the MHG 8x30 for about 2.5-3 months and am still enjoying it. My impression remains about like initial: that while a critical analysis of tripod mounted bins might reveal resolution...

The way Lee phrases it makes me think this: if you want that step up from the MHG what most comes to mind is the Zeiss SF. It is sharper, brighter, has a stunning FOV, and great ergonomics. A touch...

Sorry for the brief response but I do not know of another bin on the market that checks those boxes. The strengths of the MHG are FOV, contrast, and ergonomics. Image quality is excellent but not...

Arroyo Parejas looks to be a far more reliable spot, closer out on the ocean, than Bahia Blanca itself, for what it's worth. I don't know if that will be possible for you but if you look at the eBird...

Some impressions - MHG and M7 8x30 vs Conquest and SF 8x42

Why these 4? Because the M7, Conquest and SF are the 8x that I have the most experience with, and the MHG 8x30 is a recent addition that so far I'm liking. I'm a birder not an optical engineer so I...

Strikes me as a Phyllomyias. I’d wager Sooty-headed if you weren’t in good forest, with a smaller chance of Plumbeous-capped or Ashy-headed if there were forest nearby. All should be in range and...

Sounds like another excellent contribution. Does it follow Clements taxonomy, and does it make any taxonomic suggestions?

I have the M7’s and am quite a fan, especially at the price. The eye relief is really borderline for me, basically a hair too little with my glasses so I have to mash them into my face a bit. That...

First bird looks like a female/juv Black-faced Dacnis.

Second bird looks like a Slender-footed Tyrannulet.

The only comment I would add is that the M7 is quite light weight if that is a factor, and has the best field of view among the discussed bins, by quite a margin. I like mine but do think the...

Agreed. Doesn't look like enough white in the fingers for Scopolis and the plainly yellow bills look like Cory's over Cape Verde.
