I just need an education here. I have decided on 10x42, my dilemma is which model. I'm sure everyone has their favorite and it will kind of be a ford/chevy/dodge type topic, so what I really need to know is what type of glass or other specifics should I be looking for to get the best bang for my buck? $1000-2000 Swaro and Zeiss are out, 2 kids in college and 1 to go, so not happening. I have set the limit at $600. One thought is, if I can't afford the really good stuff am I better off just getting the $200 line and saving for the $1500 ones later and handing the $200 ones down to the kids? Is the $500 glass that much better than $200 glass? The closest big retailer to look at multiple pairs at the same time is 150+ miles away. I did look at some on my last trip through but it was after dark so indoor viewing was all I could do. Thanks for any lessons on glass types!
