Looking for binoculars

Post by Evantmk on Sat Jun 25, 2011 9:05 pm

Hi

I intend to purchase a binoculars from oversea, estimate around RM200-300. Anybody got any recommendation?

I also understand that purchasing from oversea quite reasonable, if any of guys want to tumpang together and get cheaper delivery cost.

Binoculars, what purpose you need for, for this price look like the binocular only for bird ID......

aiyaa... why bother to buy from oversea?

in pasar pudu oso got some decent bino. I bought a 10x21 Bushnell over there for RM50, just enough for me or my kid to check the bird with its 10 times magnifying power. and small and light enough to dangle over the neck all day long. although it just has 21mm objective lens, the view is bright!

I choose this after doing my homework. read on [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

Weight 270g
light and small... but not good like zeiss from my friend Sree one....
not really worth s$600, i bought few year ago...
should pay another s$150 for the Zeiss...
my one not performing well when low light ...
while my friend 's zeiss and leica can see the bird pop out from the background clearly even low light..., and lifetime warranty...

my advice is rm300/400 nikon mornach is more pratical...
8/10 time more than enough already...
