at a Sensible Price
The naked eye just can't compete with a good pair of binoculars in the hands of an amateur naturalist. Yet wildlife observation is one of the most demanding roles for a pair of binoculars.
For this application binoculars must be light and easy to hold for long periods. They must be rugged enough to be left at the bottom of your rucksack all weekend and emerge unscathed. For observations at dawn and dusk in poor light they need good light gathering ability and broadband coated optics. We also note that a large field of view is vital when searching for your quarry, more important than high magnification in most cases.
For daytime use the 8x32 is a good choice, but if you're out in poor light it's worth getting the slightly larger 8x42 or 10x42 for the extra light gathering. We find stalkers buy our 7x50 Marine, these are just stunningly bright with a 7mm exit pupil - only an active night sight is better in poor light.
The following sets would serve any budding naturalist well:
