Hi, I have recently purchased the Cabelas Euro 10x42 for hunting. I have used them on a recent hunting trip. I previously was using a Bushnell Powerview 10x50 and the difference is like night and day.  The Euro non HD is currently $699, is the HD version worth the $300 more? In term of low light performance. I have noticed when comparing the Bushnell to the euros early in the morning(still dark) there are times when I couldn't even see the side of the mountain but with the Euros I am able to still see but although it was still dark. Are the HDs better in low light conditions? I really want know what the major advances are in the HD version. I hope you guys can help me make my decision. Thanks

The HD's are slightly brighter in low light. Very clear optics. Whether they are worth another $300 is a tough call since the Euros are darn good glass to begin with. If using them for hunting, the question is how good is the glass in your scope? If you an see them with binocs but not your scope, there's no point in upgrading.

Binoculars are used in many situations, and that means before, during and after
legal hours to hunt game.  That means spotting and watching.
 
As far as what scope you choose to use, that is another issue, and not related.

The HD model has significantly improved CA control, a more neutral color bias, and better contrast.  They are really nice (Note:  I have only really used the Meopta branded versions, but they are identical).

I would have to agree on the Meopta HDs, very, very nice.

Well, whil I appreciate the distinction you make, to suggest that binos and scope are unrelated is slightly disingenuous.
