I tried the Meopta Meostar 8x32 and I wasn't that impressed with it. The Meostar 8x42 and 15x56 are a lot better IMO. I think Allbino's has the Meopta Meostar 8x32 at about 19th place and that is where I would put it. I don't understand the love for that binocular. It eludes me. I mean c'mon a $250.00 MIC Vanguard Endeavor II 8x32 is ranked above it.I think my final thinking on this evolves around the Meostar 8x32 and 10x32. The Meostar (Meopta brand) just doesn't promote their products too heavily like Swaro and Zeiss, even Nikon. But the glass....is great. The price is great. Now might be the time to act upon the Meostars while there is a change in the line-up with the Men-air and updated Meostars sometime down the road.
While the Nikon HG is great....the Swaro perhaps greater.... they change, they give us 'new and improved' etc...flashy adds and video etc...the Meostar just plugs along.
