Hello all, been away for quite a while, and it looks like I got some catching up to do. I have a pair of kahles 10x42 and was thinking about trading up in the world. Does anyone know what is going on with kahles?  Are they no longer makeing binoculars? Does this make mine worth less now? How much should I be able to get out of mine now? Also  what is a god pair of 10x42 for around $1000, they will mainly be used for hunting. Also how do the burrs signature select 8X56 stack up against my kahles?   Thanks Guys

I believe they were discontinued.  I don't see them on either their international or USA websites anymore. 
 
I have one of their 10X42 binoculars, and although they are decent binos, I don't think they came anywhere close to stacking up to the performance level of their scopes.  They were way behind the times on technology compared to other binos in the same price range.  I bought mine at a discount based solely on Kahles' reputation and my experience with their scopes.  Even at the discounted price, I was disappointed in them.  They have very prominent CA and lack of contrast.

Thanks RifleDude, it's a shame their binoculars didn't match the quality of their scopes.

They also had a heckuva time find anyone to service their products here in the US.  Their outsourcing doesn't/didn't work.
