Which of these offer the best bang for the buck? Im looking for my first set of binoculars. They will be used for long range shooting, and occasionally for hunting.

Im only interested in the 8x42 models.

OK - it's a bit late for this thread, but I haven't stopped in here for a while.

I have not used the 42mm XC, but did try an 8x32.  Like every other Steiner bino I have tried, the XC underperforms.  I won't go into specifics here, but the XC did not outperform a Sightron Blue Sky at all, and in some areas is worse.  Pretty bad when a $400+ bino can't do better than a $169 bino.  Run away from the XC line.....
