the Minox looks good but I am concerned it doesn't have ED glass how much of a difference will this make in low light and at long range compared to say the Vortex 15x56  Kiababs. Two big issues for me are the lower light performance and good resolution and contrast at long range in an affordable package.

I used to own the Minox 13x56 and thought they were superb optically.  I don't think the lack of ED glass is a problem.  I read a comparison of Big Eyes binoculars in which the Minox 15x58 ED were rated as almost as good as the Swaro.  I thought the 13x56 were better than the 15x58.  If you did a side by side comparo, I suspect that the Swaro would win, but you'd be splitting hairs.  Considering the difference in price between the Minox 15x56 and the Swaro or even the Kaibab, I think the Minox is the best value for the money.  I'm assuming that the Minox 15x56 are as good as the 13x56.  I've not seen a single review of them.

yes I have been checking around in 15X the Minox 15x56 seems to be the best value for sure.
