Never have handled their binoculars, but they do make nice rifle scopes.

Best I have owned Kahles 8X42, best I have used Swaro.

Currently using Vortex Viper 10X42 HD, not what the Swaro or Kahles were but good for the $.

+2. I would do this, and would also include the Nikon EDG as being equal to the euros above. If the OP MUST have a new bino, consider Meopta.

I bought a couple of pairs of Docter Optic binos ( 7x50, 8x56 ) for comparatively reasonable money. They are both heavy, but the optics are exceptional.
