A compact roof prism 12x30 with a 218 ft field of view is your best binocular and you sold everything else. You are kidding, right?

Well, they probably would not be my top choice for the only binocular to have, but Sightron S3 binoculars are very well built and have good glass.  I had a 10x42 S3 for a while and was very happy with it.

As for the FOV, while important, it is not as critical as people make out.

12x is a bit much for me since my hands are not all that steady, but many people have steadier hands.

Hello anwels

 

I had been searching for that one binocular that does it all for me and this binocular here is amazing, light, compact and delivers the optical performance at a fraction of the price of others. I sold my other binoculars and bought more tactical scopes.
