Did changing to a lighter 32mm over 42mm bino really make that much difference? (1 Viewer)

Right now I have a 10x42 MHG, 8x32 Cabelas Guide Series aka Leupold Mojave BX-3 (Amazing made in Japan gem with locking diopter that I bought on closeout for $98!) and a 8x30 MHG 8x30.
You like lightweight binoculars. The MHG's are nice and light for their aperture. I think the MHG 10x42 is the best of all the MHG's.
Yes I do as I spend a lot of time hiking in the mountains. Really like my 10x42s but wouldn’t mind having a pair of the 8x42s for the fov and low light performance. Lots of nice glasses out there but I do put a premium on weight so they HGs are a good fit for me.
I moved from my what 'was my basic' bin...a 10x42 to a 7x35.... True, not in the spirit of this thread moving to a 32x, but.... the size is spot on. I wonder how many feel a 32 is too small or is a negative and if so, for what reasons other than light? ... I don't, but curious how many would.
