I went to Cabela's to check out bino's, I couldn't see much difference between Nikon and Luepold. I wear glasses and both brands were about equal for us glass wearers for comfort. I did like the 10x40 over the 8x40 Nikons. I would suggest for long range glassing the 10x40 seemed pretty good. For bow hunters Nikon makes a 8x36 model that was a pretty nice compromise. Myoptics.com have some good prices once you pick the model/brand you want. Bass Pro or Cabela's have a great assortment of bino's to look at. Something Cabela's has is a target up on the ceiling to focus on while looking through each brand, it helps to see glass quality.
