I have the same binoculars (10x Eagle optics Rangers) as Gene mentioned. The
reason I bought those particular culars was 1: I heard 3 stories of Eagles
optics,  no baloney lifetime guarantee, 2. They close focus to like 3 feet
so I use them for insects and other close up things,  3. They are very light
weight and comfortable. 4. They were what I could afford.  It takes a bit of
adjusting to use a 10x cular and I would say low light conditions the small
lens size (32) is a disadvantage over a larger lens cular, colors wash out
in early morning compared to larger lens culars. However the extra
magnification for looking at butterflies made the tradeoff. If I was
strictly after birds I would have gone with the 8x.
