I was looking at purchasing these binoculars, wondered if there were any reviews?  They look like they are supposed to have a wider field of view than the older 8.5x43 version and are lightweight for mountain hunting.  I'm particularly interested in how they perform in low light.  I have a $300 Minox 8x43 I got used for my truck binos, and BL 13x56 Minox for my Big Eyes and have been happy with their performance at their price.
Is there something else I should look at in the $1000-$1200 range that beats them badly? 
 
Thanks for any help you can give.

The only bins that compare are Zeiss and Leica or the limited edition Nikon that are 3X more expensive.
the magnesium chassis with their rubber coated skin makes them outstanding. Filled with argon and using Schott lenses (owned by Zeiss) for the cost the HG Minox line  in my experience is better.
