Seriously considering replacing my current bino's (Bushnell 7x32 something or other) with the Nikon Eagleview 8-24x35 (not quite sure of the obj size).  I want something that can pull dual duty in the field, and the variable power of these approaches the lower power range of most spotting scopes.  Had a chance to look through the Eagleview at the mall (not the best place) and they seemed bright and clear.


Anyone have any opinions to go with it or not?  I'll be using them mostly for deer hunting in central NC, and the prices range from $140-170 from different sources, although I haven't seen this particular item on SWFA.  Much of my hunting varies from open to thick, and I like being able to bring the image in close to pick out deer from clutter.


Any input is greatly appreciated.

There has never been a variable power binocular that was worth a d@*# for ruggedness.  Leica's Duovid is great, but they are not really a true variable. Collimating the double barrels of a binocular with a single (or in the case of the Leicas a dual) magnification power is hard enough, but to do so with so much variability in power has never been successfully accomplished with any degree of quality. Brunton is coming out with a true variable in their high-end Epoch line, but it remains to be seen if they will, at last, accomplish the feat. For now, you should buy a good binocular and supplement it with a good spotting scope.
