 I'm in the market for a new pair of bino's. I've been looking at this pair here for 135.00 on SWFA. Does anyone have any imput on the action line of the nikon bino's? I'm mostly looking for something for low light.

Also, the are a older pair of Steiner old nighthunters 8X56 for like 280.00 bucks on samplelist, that i've been pondering over as well. And i've looked through a pair of the nighthunters and with the 56 bell they were very bright a dark.

I would like to get a good pair of bino's that are good and bright under low light conditions with out going over say 350.00 bucks. I've got a zeiss rifle scope now and would like something that would kinda be in the same line as my scope. for brightness and clarity. Something in the 50 to 56 bell with 7 or 8 zoom... I'm not worried about bulkyness, or weight, or anything.. i just want a good low light bino to match my scope. Only for hunting purposes.

You want a Zeiss-quality binocular with 50 - 56mm objective lenses for under $350?


That's a pretty tall order there.



The closest thing I can think of to your desired specifications would be the 8.5x56 Nikon Monarch ATB, which lists for about $380.  Whether or not they qualify as "Zeiss-quality" would be up to you to decide.


If you can live with slightly smaller (42mm) objective lenses and if you aren't concerned with mounting your binocular to a tripod, then recently discontinued Bushnell Discoverers in 7x, 8x, and 10x can be found for as low as $225, $235, and $270 respectively. These are pretty darn great glasses and a veritable steal at these prices.

The Steiner has IF/Individual Focus eyepieces, some people love them, some people hate them.

An 8x56 will gather slightly more light than 7x50mm.

Either one will be great for low light situations.

The optical coatings on the Steiner should give it the edge over the Nikon coatings.

The eye relief is better on the Steiner (21mm vs. 17.1mm) just in case you wear eyeglasses.
