    Quality Porro 6.5x30~35 binoculars?

    I had "lazy eye" as a child that wasn't diagnosed until grade school. By then, the options to restore my sight were long gone and I have had to work to overcome that early childhood oversight all my life. This makes me sensitive in unusual ways to different optical systems. Not to mention...

    Quality Porro 6.5x30~35 binoculars?

    Really nice! Watching the goose on my friend's pond at ~30 yards was a good experience. They are good enough to get me to consider some 9x33's at ~$320. Their form factor is a really nice fit for my hands and facial features. With my glasses and eye issues, I still have a little bit of...

    Quality Porro 6.5x30~35 binoculars?

    I really wanted some good Porro bins, not Roof but, the Porro options of quality are very limited. For near throw pricing with ED glass, I can live with the compromise and Wide Field of View. ;)

    Quality Porro 6.5x30~35 binoculars?

    Quality Porro 6.5x30~35 binoculars?

    The Celestron Granite 7X33 ED look good. I wonder if there are any similar bins with a closer focus than 2m or ~6.5ft.

    Quality Porro 6.5x30~35 binoculars?

    I'm trying to warm up to the Kowa 6.5x32, and have ruled out the Maven B3's and Pentax Papillion bins. I need a closer focus that most of the common models offer along with eyeglass compatibility. I would like a form factor a little better than my Steiner 8x30's but, that is a 'nice to have'...
