I posted an earlier thread for a mid -range bino but because I`m not planning to buy one every 5 years I decided to raise my budget to 900 euro.

I use my binocular almost every day at home (home next to forest and green areas), especially during the evenings and mornings. Primary uses are birding and some other small wildlife. Bright sharp and contratsfull images are important, also waterproof.

Options: A new binocular just below the high -end ones, another option would be to purchase a second hand Zeiss, Leica or Swarovski.

Based uppon some reviews I found:

NIKON HG 10x42 L DCF - 850 euro, scores very well on all reviews I`ve read

VORTEX VIPER HD 10x42 - 609 euro

ZEISS Conquest HD 10x42 - 950 euro

LEICA Trinovid 10x42 - 850 euro (This one I can buy with a friend who works at the main distributer of Leica, normal price is 1150 euro)

Others also possible but I would be interested in actual experience with these types.

For the second hand marked I can find (from time to time):

Swarovski EL 10x42 for 1100 euro
Zeiss Victory FL 10x42 for 1100 euro

Thank you very much

Vortex Vipers are solid. The Razor hd's should be thrown in the mix too.
