Olá,

I am interested to buy a 8x30 Steiner Nighthunter model for stalking hunt.
What do you think about the quality of the Steiner binos?
 
Thank you.
 
I wish a good New Year for you all.
 
Jorge

Happy New Year, Jorge
I searched and found that there was some favorable opinions on them here @ O.T.
I have a pair of 15x80 Steiner Senators and the glass is pretty good for the money.

Sure Steiner makes quality products, yes there are better and worse binos out there.  "Quality" is a perseption, If the product suits your needs and meets your expectations than thats all you can ask for.

I heard Steiner has been sold to an Italian company. Does anyone know the name of the Italian company?

Jorge,
The 8x30 Nighthunter has lenses optimized to increase contrast. It should be an excellent hunting binocular.
However, if you need to pay much more for those Steiners than for other quality binoculars of similar size, i don't think that they are worth it.

Good afternoon.
 
I bought today the Nighthunter 8x30 and it seems to have a rugged construction and a sharp image. Here in Portugal the price is about 540 Euros but with a reduction i payed 460 Euros. Not cheap.
 
Many thanks for all replys.
 
Jorge
