    I was sitting here looking at my old binoculars and wondered what each of you guys use and what would you use if price was no object?

    I use Nikon Morarchs, if price was no consideration I would use Brunton Epochs.

      I was just looking over mine - Pentax DCF SP 8x43. Good glass for the money.

      If price is no object, Leica Geovid BRF 10x42. I'd love to sit next to someone with a rangefinder that doesn't know anything about rangefinder binoculars. I'd look through the Geovids and say, "Could you check that distance for me, I think it is about 317 yards."

      But, if buying a new pair today, it would be the Leupold Golden Ring HD 10x42.

        cheap ones of course currently use Bushnells and have for the last three sets. I have little 10x30 and bigger 10x50s and they work ok, if money was no object then I'd go with Ziess my uncle has a pair and the are crystal clear

            Again, something German. Everybody loves Zeiss and Swarovski (actually Austrian, but they speaka ze Deutsch there too), so I'd go with Leica. Their stuff looks cool too.

              Several years ago, a good (Government issue) binocular was stolen from my vehicle and I couldn't find an affordable replacement, so I purchased a Bushnell 8x50 binocular on sale for about $50 as an interim measure, and they've served me well. I don't abuse my equipment; they've gotten a few taps from crawling or bumping into a few things, a few raindrops, a little trail dust from time to time, but they're still fine. If these were stolen or lost, I believe I'd purchase another.

                I use Vortex Vipers 10x42. Can't beat the customer service,and clarity. The price is 1/3-1/4 the cost of Swarovski or Leica and sids by side I have been told you can't tell the difference. I have tried Leica, Leupold, Nikon, Pentax, and Bushnell, I have a pair of Celestrons, these Vortex are the best I have used.

                  I currently use Nikon Monarchs but if I had the money I'd purchase a pair of Swarovskis.

                    My dad gave his old pair of Bushnells when he bought a new pair of Nikon. The bushenell still works like new.
