The internals of the Euro are the same as the Meopta.  The only thing different is the shell of the Euro.  The Euro has a limited life time warenty.  I recently talked with a guy from Meopta and told him the price Cabelas has going on and he said that was a great deal.  Yesterday I purchased a pair of used Meoptas 10x42 and am very pleased.  I went out last night at dusk and later at dark and all I can say is "wow".  That's my two cents.  Good luck!

Hi Matt!  Welcome.

I owned the Meoptas (Cabelas Euro) and they really are great bins.  I don't think you would be disappointed in any way with the Cabelas Euros.

I do think you get more value with a "Chinese ED" binocular.  This group of binoculars are made by a chinese OEM to the specs of the various companies marketing them.  I have, and really like, the Zen Ray Zen ED2.  You should definitely look into them.

A binocular enthusiast member here, Klamath, is about ready to post a review of binoculars in your price range, and it could be of some help to you.  You might want to wait to hear what he has to say.

My brother just got the Euros because of the great sale.  As a matter of fact, he sold me his 10x42 Meoptas so that he could get the 10x50 Euros.  Everything I have seen and read indicates that they are the same internals with the outer shell being a little different.  Meopta makes the Euros, Cabelas covers the warrenty for the Euros.

Just curious as why you're wanting a 10X model? In my opinion, the 8X has so many more attributes than 10X but to each his own.
