I got a pair using some points, because there was nothing else I wanted. I forget which ones, but they are a decent set, but I don't really use them. I based my decision on reviews. Mine were not refurbs fwiw.Anyone seen the new pro binocs come through the reconditioned section on Olympus' website? I'm interested in them but would be more interested in them at a discount.
Canon has some IS binoculars. Pricey, but stabilized for exactly those reasons. I'd have a hard time holding 10x or above. 8x is my limit.What interests me today are the stabilized binoculars.
While I can hold a camera and long lens steady, I CANNOT hold a binocular steady. Anything above 5x and I get visually seasick from the wobble.
