I posted this in the scope forum and was referred here. Between now and next hunting season I am going to be in need of binoculars for sitting with my grandsons deer hunting over green fields. Distance will be 100 yards or less. My need is for good glass in low light conditions. Three I am considering are Nikon Monarch 10x42, Steiner 8x50 MGA (old Night Hunter) and Steiner 8x30 Hunting. Any other suggestions are appreciated. Prices are about the same, about $275.

May I also suggest you take a look at the new Monarch models I just noticed up on the SWFA products section. They have a 8x36, 10x36, 8.5x56, 10x56 and 12x56. Price on the 8x36 Monarchs is right at $250 while the 8x5x56 model was around $400. The 36 mm models might be slightly handier than the 42 mm but you are going to give up some low light performance. The 56 mm models should be excellent in low light conditions but are going to be bigger and a bit heavier. I plan on ordering one of the 36 mm models myself.
