    What kind of optics (binoculars) do you use? WHat opinions do you have about different types and brands?

    I have several pair, but the best by far are my Zeiss. I keep a pair of simmons in my waist pack as back up and have a high powered zoom Bushnell pair.

    I currently am using a pair of bushnells while I save some cash. I really like vortex optics great product and glass for everyone's budget. I've almost pulled the trigger on cabelas alaskan guide series a couple of times hard to find anything even close to them at a 499 price point

    Vortex Diamondback 8x42's. Great binos for the money.

    I have Nikon Monarch 10x42. The glass is OK but the durability of the eyecups on the binos hasn't been very good.

    I use Nikon for everything. DSLR Camera, Range Finder, Binos, and rifle scopes. never had a problem with any of them.
