It's always nice to have that bit of reassurance though, and from peoples experiences.
I was able to draw up the short list at the optics day at Essex Wildlife Trusts Abberton visitor centre yesterday.
Problem is after an extended time of comparing, I think any noticeable difference is lost.
There's also pros and cons of both 8x42 & 10x42.
On their own, I think I would opt for the 10x42, but as I will also be using a scope as well, I think an 8x42 with a greater fov will be beneficial, using the scope to zoom in for more detail.
have faith in the Force, and it will be with you
