I am in the market for a new pair of binoculors for my brother. They will mostly be used for deer and elk hunting out in Idaho deserts. The spotting of game can be long range. I have it narrowed down to a couple,  Leupold BX-2 Cascades or Zen Ray ZRS HD both in 10x42. Also, have been eyeing the Leupold Acadia 10x42. I am looking for overall clarity edge to edge. Anybody want to chime in ? Thanks

While I like Leupold and use a fair number of Leupold products, I have always felt that the ENTIRE Green Ring Binocular series felt a lot like looking through a couple of toilet paper tubes that magnified the view.  Their images are more or less decent enough, but the apparent field of view pretty much always sucks.  There will assuredly be other viewpoints there.
The ZRS has a wider true fov and a larger apparent fov than anything Leupold Green Ring.  The HD in the ZRS HD moniker is an HD field flattener lens.  No ED glass anywhere, but the image is quite flat and much sharper at the edge than you might expect.  Additionally the ZRS is the most compact full size glass I have ever had in my hand.  It is also the best glass at its price point I have ever tried.
You will get opinions on other stuff too, but since you asked about Green Ring vs ZRS, that's my story and I'm sticking to it.
