OK, I have been researching and researching   After ALL my reading I came up with several binoculars that come highly recommended for my price range.  Which pair would you choose from the following:

  • Alphen Apex 493 8x42
  • Carson XM 8x42
  • Minox BD 8x42 BL
  • Pentax DCF SP 8x43

Thanks for your time and for helping me out with my decission!  Have a GREAT day!

The Minox BD BL is a light version with  not quite the optics of the metal bodied BD BR series. A good binocular, nevertheless.

The Alpens are sloppy work made in China.

The Carson XM i don't know, but i would not buy, just because....

By far, your best pick is the Pentax DCF SP.

My vote is for the Pentax DCF SP's. Not only are they fantastic glass, but they now carry a no questions asked lifetime warranty that allows you to return them for any reason, even if the damage was your fault, for a cost of $20.00.
