I got my copy of Bird Watcher's Digest with the binocular review today.  It was very interesting and enlightening.  I'm glad you recommended it.  As you say, there were a few surprises, at least for me!  Excellent

I am glad you enjoyed it. 
 
I like keeping up with product reviews, if only for my own personal information.
 
I can't spend what I don't have, so, at least I'm not in danger of buying something I can't afford.
 
The wife and I have a total of nine binoculars, she has one and I have eight.
She's already drawn a line in the sand,Indian so imagine it will be a long time before anything else comes into the house.

Yeah, wives can be a little funny about those sort of things.  Mine doesn't understand why I have to have several "perfect" rifles.  After all, if it's perfect, it should be good for EVERYTHING!  Whacko
 
I was really surprised about the little 6x32 Katmai.  That glass should be perfect for the way I tend to hunt these days, and wouldn't be too hard on the pocket book.  It also seems a guy couldn't go wrong with a Minox.
 
Have a good weekend,
 
Steve

My wife has the Leupold Katmai 6x32mm and she really likes them alot.
 I used them around the backyard and had to give them back to her, as they were too addictive. They are so small and lightweight, and the wide FOV makes them hard to put down.

Thanks for the info!  That's exactly the reasons I'm interested in them: small, light, and wide FOV.  They seem to have a lot of bang for the buck.

Here is a very brief review: http://www.binoculars.org/birding/Reviews/Leupold/Katmai6x32.html but, you can click on the other link contained within, that links to Cornell, for general info.
