    If you keep on checking ebay, you may be lucky enough to score a pair of Zeiss Conquest HD for that price. I agree that the special Birdforum price for PRIME HD is hard to beat for such an awesome glass.

    Vortex viper HD or Zen ED3

    I had ZEN ED binoculars for several years. I have compared it to Viper HD last year. Both are fine binoculars. The resolution is quite similar. But ZEN ED really shines on the color aberration control. It is so good that I would even place it at the same league as some of the Alpha binos...
