Has anyone had the chance to evaluate Bushnell's new Elite series of bino's and if so, what did you think of them for the money?

Roy, I have bnot got to get serious with them yet.  But, I have got to play with three different Elites on three seperate occassions.  Time with each ranged from about 15 minutes to as much as an hour and a half.  I thought they were great.  Apparently most people don't have the same high opinion that I do.  Maybe you finally brainwashed me into liking anything that says Elite.  For the money is debateable.  I thought they were actually better than some binos costing more, but at the same time I found them comparable to others costing a little less.  If I needed/wanted them, I would not hesitate to purchase them.

After using my new  8X43's over the past couple weeks I feel you can't go wrong with them. The brightness and depth view is amazing.

I haven't seen the new Elite's in person yet, but the Bushnell/B&L Elite's have always had a good reputation for being a quality product for the money. I'm guessing the majority of guys that won't like them are the ones who are more concerned about what badge is hanging around their neck for people to fawn over, rather than the actual optical quality of their binos.....

Yes indeed! You hear people who haven't even looked through them say "$1000 BUSHNELLS?" What you get is a very nice high end bino and don't pay for the name and expensive ads.

Field and Stream just rated them as a "Best of the Best."  I don't know how much weight you give to the magazine's  decision making process, but considering the Elites were in the running against basically all of their competitors, it must count for something that they were selected.
