    SWAROVSKI AX VISIO: MY LEARNINGS IN A NUTSHELL

    Very sensible! If the main object is good photography: use a dedicated camera. If the main object is a whole day out birding to see and ID, you would do well with binos and scope and one or two of the excellent bird guides printed. (I'd bring the AX as the larger binoculars here) If you like...
