the brand of binox is important?
 
can somebody tell me how many brands of binoculars do you know? And what type own good quality and best price?
if you've the chance to buy, do you choose famous binoculars or normal bino?

I purchase what I can afford, 8X42 is a good all around glass, that won't cripple the bank. $200-300 should purchase fairly good quality glass with appropriate coatings for the average hunter.

Well, I totally agree with Hunting Man.

I got a $150 pair of nikons. Does the job just fine.

The type usage you're planning on should determine how much $$ you should spend or plan on spending IMHO. If you simply need something for checking out movement or a couple of deer that show up in the back 40, any decent glass will likely work. But, if you're out west using the glasses for hours on end glassing, I can promise you you'd rather have the best you can afford to avoid eyestrain.

I'd agree that 8X32 or 8X40s are perhaps the most useful sizes in most cases, but if longer ranges are involved 9X40 or even 10X40/42/45 can be an excellent choice as well. As with rifle scopes, better glass and coating will make for better clarity and low light performance. I've never heard anyone say they wished they had spent less on a scope or binoculars....:no:

Things the wives say
 
My wife always says shoot a cow, when I go Deer hunting. I always remind her the farmer would not appreciate me doing that.

My Son bought some Leopold Yosmite 8x30s
 
My Son needed some binos and he bought the 8x30 Yosmite by Leopold. They are poro prisms with rubber armor on them. The depth of field is better then my 28 year old Zeiss 8x30 roof prisms. I think this might be a something that all poro prisms share. His are also much lighter than my armored Zeiss's. He was able to pick them up at Scheed's in Fargo ND for around 80 dollars.
