These were not available via amazon prime so I went to the local big sporting goods store. They had these Leupold 6x30 Yosemite binocs sitting out along with most other major brands. These are excellent binocs at the price. Crystal clear and tons of light. I spent over 40 minutes testing binocs. They totally blew away the Nikon Monarchs sitting beside them that are almost three times more expensive and way darker with a less responsive focus. I have a three month old pair of Nikon Prostaffs and they are not on par with the Yosmite either. I did also look at the 8x Yosemite but liked the 6x better as you can focus on things about 5 feet away with the 6x. Also looked at some Swarovski's...heh, nice, real nice but not 2k worth of nicer. When I judge binocs my standard is a 40 year old pair of 6x Tascos made in Japan. Not sure why most modern glass seems inferior to those...but these Leupolds are very close, so I bought them. I recommend them. Clear, bright, very quick focus, and smooth...
great pair of binos for the price. lightweight for ease of wearing all day. I recommend a racer back type harness for wearing em on your chest. I got the 6x30 for wide FOV when looking across mountains for elk and sheep. these are great for locating animals but not enough power for close inspection of a particular animal thats hundreds/thousands of yards away. for that you'll need a spotting scope. so far they seem rugged and I like caps. I'll report back with more later
Definitely an easier lug than 7x35s, very bright, giant view, and razor-sharp focus. I had a problem with the eye relief for a while: it was long but fixed (you had to float your eye 3/4 inch away or lose the field), but once I screwed the eye-cups out (they are a twist-to-deploy thing), it got easy to bring them to bear on things. This is a sort of a cheat....the super image quality of $300 binocs at a knock-down price. Good compromise. Slightly better that the Nikon Action binocs for a little more. There are so few binocs in this price/performance range, unless you get 1950s-1960s Japanese models, open them, clean them carefully, and fix up the grease. This is a classic. Tried the 8x30 Yosemites at a shop...those are awesome too. Update, April 2013: Squint (losing image when your eye isn't perfectly positioned) was bugging me too much so I sold these on. Acts a bit like a gunsight that way. I like to grab the binocs for a quick lock-on. I need less 'squint'. All other...
