Just wanting to get some insight on how these 2 binos compare to one another.  Will be using them for deer hunting only esp. low light conditions. I have looked thru the nighthunters before and they were awesome but have not gotten a chance to check out the predator c5s..  any info would be greatly appreciated

If low light is your primary concern, I'd go with the NightHunter XP's. The drawback to how the Predator coatings work is a slight decrease in light transmission in the blue/green region in order to gain in the red/brown spectrum. I've owned Predators in the 8x42 version and when you stack them with a broad band coated bino you can see how the red/brown stand out more than they do with broad band coatings. So I guess it comes down to a decision on your part as to what is most important, absolute low light performance or a coating that helps you spot deer better.
