    I will. Might be funny for you all from such a novice!

    2nd Pair / Upgrade for Birder - Advise Needed

    I’ll definitely look into the Canon 10x42L!

    2nd Pair / Upgrade for Birder - Advise Needed

    I’ll have bias, so my plan is to take them out with my wife and see what she likes best. She’ll have no idea which is the most expensive.

    2nd Pair / Upgrade for Birder - Advise Needed

    I just bought Opticron Verano BGA VHD 8x32, Meopta MeoStar B1 Plus 8x32, and Zeiss Victory SF 8x32 to test out. We shall see. Thank you, all, for your input!

    2nd Pair / Upgrade for Birder - Advise Needed

    Sorry, that was not my intention. I suppose I was looking at allbinos rankings and landed on the top ranked model in the 8x32 category. But, as a novice - and coming from the Zen-Rays - the Meostars likely would wow us even if they aren't the 'best' - and save some $ at the same time.

    I wrote this earlier thinking it was here but it was in a private message: What about this crazy thought? Go big or go home. Zeiss Victory SF 8x32 Take the budget of the two I was considering and just buy this one.

    I'm looking into these now. B&H has a solid return period now - until 01/31/24 - so I could buy them there and try them out. I could bring them to Costa Rica with us and stay within the return period.

    2nd Pair / Upgrade for Birder - Advise Needed

    Thank you. I should have added - neither of us wear glasses. We are in our 40s, so that likely may change as we age with whatever we choose. But, for now, thankfully, no glasses are needed.

    Japanese components that are assembled in the US. Yes, that is right. 8x30/32 and a 10x42 to complement the 8x42 we have already. Alternatively, I could replace the 8x42 Zen-Rays with a better set of 8x42s.

    2nd Pair / Upgrade for Birder - Advise Needed

    Many years ago when we had less money, I bought Zen-Ray Vista 8x42 binoculars for my wife. She is a birder and still uses them often. I'd like to purchase either a complementary second pair or an upgrade to the Zen-Rays. We are going to Costa Rica soon - to the Osa Peninsula to be exact - a...
