I'm looking out for a first pair of binoculars (10x50). Looking at the specifications, it seems the Bushnell (which can be had for $85) trumps both Nikons (which are $97 and $169 respectively). The Bushnell is fully multi-coated, whereas the Nikon website states that the Action EX's have "multi-layer coated lenses".

What would be your recommendation out of the three? Are there any other better value 10x50 binoculars out there? My budget is around $100-$150, but I could stretch it a little more (hence why i'm considering the Action EX's)

Here's one more for you to consider.


Your best bet is to find a Sporting Goods Store where you can compare them for yourself. 

The Nikon Action Extreme has the w i d e s t  FOV, & is waterproof/fogproof, vs the Aculon which has neither.

The Pentax has the narrowest FOV, but is known for being a pretty rugged Porro prism.
The Pentax PCF WP II series has an internal focus design which gives it a JIS 6 waterproof rating.

The Bushnell has the same FOV as the Nikon AE.
