The Samplelist has some factory reburbished Steiner Nighthunters 10x50 that look good. Do the refurbished binocs have a factory warranty and how old are they. Has anyone here bought the Nighthunters in 10x50 and do you like them?

I tried to speak with Chris today but did speak with Mary who said the refurbished Steiners have a 5 yr warranty. She did not know how up to date the coatings were.
I have narrowed doen my search to Pentax DCF SP 10x43 ,the Steiner refurbished Nighthunter 10x50 or the Steiner 10x50 military/marine which I can get new for $499.
What should I get?

I looked at some of these.  All the Steiner porros did not have close enough I-P distance for me, so I did not look thru them extensively.  I looked at the 8x43 version of the Pentax SP.  They were very good, I had 3 issues; focuser was on the stiff side, eye relief was a little long relative to the eyecups and lastly, while the view is extremely sharp across the entire field, I thought that the field was less flat than some others ( i think that is the trade off, more sharpness across the field equals more curvature of the field).  I preferred a flatter field with some sharpness loss, but if they are to your liking, they are a nice package.  I just sold some Fujinon 7x50 FMTR-SX.  They were easily the best optically of what I have looked thru, but at 3.3 lbs, they were too heavy for me.
