Moved to Chas. SC from L.A. via Ohio. Current member of the Medina Ohio Photographers Of The Park club (POTP). I've been photographing with various digital cameras for a few years, but neglected binoculars which are so much better for observing birds. So I purchased a Leica Ultravid 8x20 today (also have a Leitz 10x25 from the 1970s) after researching this forum and elsewhere for best choices in a small binocular. Looking forward to reporting any good finds from my location.
