I bought the 8x30 ones a while back for my dad, and he loves them, but i haven't yet seen them myself.
For a fall bear hunt, I was thinking about getting the 10x50 Steiners:
Having read a lot of reviews, they seem to be very high quality, and the auto-focus mechanism appears to be very convenient and reliable. Do I really have to spend $2K on Swaros or Zeiss? Any thoughts?

Thanks in advance.

My first pair of Steiner's were 7x50 MM and I can tell you by the end of the day they were heavy around the neck. I much prefer a lighter bino for hunting. Also, for me a 10x bino is more difficult to hold steady w/o some type of rest. I'm not talking about the actual weight here, I'm referring to the amount the imagine is being magnified. You might want to try a pair of 10X's and see if this is a problem for you as well. I'm not talking about a casual glance at a store either. Take a pair and hold them for 5-10 minutes w/o putting them down while looking through them.
