Binoculars (V/V) – price or why unfortunately money can buy you love

There are four important numbers associated with a pair of binocular that you will need to know: magnification, diameter, field of view, and price.

Unlike many products a binoculars’ price is directly related to its quality. That being said the improvement from an old pair of opera glasses to a pair of new, low price binoculars will be a wonderful change. Many bird watchers are now hooked on Zeist, Leica, and Swarovski spending upwards of $2,000 per pair there are some wonderful binoculars made by Nikon, Eagle Optics, and Vortex for under $200. Find a store or at least borrow a pair from a friend and spend some time looking through any pair of binoculars before you purchase them.
