Re: Binocular Conundrum: Field of View?

I'm a bit late on this thread, perhaps you haven't purchased a pair yet?
I broke down and paid the "big" bucks on the stabilized binos and am very happy I did. You can get more powerful ones (10 or 12 X magnification verses 8, the standard for small craft) as the stabilizing really does work and field of vision is not a factor when you can stay on target.
Again, this is another (of few) new items that greatly exceeds the hype, in performance.
My $650.00 8X50 rubber coated "marine" binos w/ compass never get used any more.
