I'm just starting deer stalking. binoculars were my first purchase while my fac renewal and application for deer rifle is in. im fortunate to have gained a small stately home estate and a mentor. 90% close woodland stalking. set my self a poor man's budget of £300 and read many many reviews wound up spending £209 went for 8x44 as i know they are not primo glass. Absolutely blew my socks off matched far more expensive (1k) glasses and perfect for me with speccy glasses. i was prepared to be disappointed but was stunned. remember every £saved on binoculars can be spent on a scope and rifle. clarity and detail depth of field and low light performance was far far above my expectations at this price. I have used posh glass, invariably 10x42 or 8x42. my minox work slightly better when set up for my eyes with no glasses , but obviously when stalking you can't be taking them off and on when glassing doubt ill miss out on anything due to cheap (ish) binos very surprised and impressed.
