Hi, are there any difference in the 8x44 and the 10x44. I can find the 10x44 still for sale cheap but no reviews. I have 8x42 steiner predators now, just need a 10x to see horns better thanks.

I tested the Minox 8x44 Porro approx. three years ago and sent it back.
This year I purchased the Minox 10x44 Porro and kept it, as I prefer more magnification than 8x.
 
Major difference between the two, other than 2x magnification
8x44 = 5.5mm exit pupil
10x44 = 4.4mm exit pupil
 
8x44 = 6.4*  FOV
10x44 = 5.1*  FOV
 
Both weigh the same and share the same overall dimensions.
Both close focus down to 13'.
 
Both are Made in JAPAN
Light Transmission, both rated at 94.5 % which is slightly under the L.T. of 95+% for Fujinon FMT-SX.
 
Both have excellent 3D and the optics are incredibly sharp.
 
Here's some reading for you:
