Another one worth lookin at is the Minox MD50. Probably the best non hd 50mm spotter and you can get a demo for $229 from cameralandny or new at b&h photo for $269, look for reviews and you will see the only 50mm spotter that is better is the Nikon ed. I have the little minox and it is amazing glass for the price. I picked up a demo and it was brand new just had been to a trade show but never taken out of the box.
Dotman , I was looking at the minox md50. I was going to buy one until this deal came up. I had a twenty dollar off coupon about to expire so... I have the burton eternas binos and like them. Better than most but not ziess-swaro quality. My budget is forcing compromise. I got more wants than I got gots !
