    Careful with the Zens. I have the 10 x 43 and they were good until I dropped them. Not sure they can be repaired, warranty I hope

    In all seriousness we use 10x42s for 95% of our glassing. Check out the Vortex due to their crazy good warranty. There are places you can get great prices on them.

    8 power is nice if you are doing a lot of glossing in confined spaces, like in open timber.

    Looks like the 10's win. I've heard good things on the zens but was leaning vortex before I found the zens for $339

    I have heard Zens and good glass, but I so love a good warranty. I have had trashed Swaros rebuilt like new more than once on the company's dime. Vortex so far has been super to deal with as well.

    I prefer 10x, even for hunting WT here.

    Take a look at/through the Minox as well.

    10s. I've had 12s and they are overboard, 8s and they are underboard.

    I'm currently running the razor hd 12's. There a bit much to get used to the first couple trips. But once you figure em out there handy. Only downside is once you throw a bit of adrenalin in the mix. You resort to butt on the ground elbows on knees to get a sturdy view. I've built a habit of dropping my pack every time I see an animal now. I think 10's are a great choice for an all around glass. Leave you not "wanting" more. I chose 12's this season because I'm running a 65mm spotter. I always had this idea that 12's plus a compact spotter would be a great package. I like it so far. But would also be content with 10's.
