Thank you! That was very helpful.

I've decided to make the 8x32 buying an adventure. I'm trying out a bunch of $400 or less binos this week (hurray for return policies!), then I'll try some in the $1000 or less range, then finish with the $1500 or less range. I'll post my non-super-technical thoughts as they come in.

But I think the CPO UVHD+ will be it for me, as I'm very happy with UVBR 8x20s.
