I would say get them at that price. I've used Steiners for years and have always been happy with them. I prefer the 8x30 power version.

One thing to consider is that with 12 power, they will have to be braced pretty well or you won't see much for the wobble.

I don't have Steiners but I do use a Bushnell Trophy 12x50. I use them at the bench on squirrels. Little heave but the power I like.

I look at their 8x50 at bass pro, I think they were around 400$, so get them for sure

I have a pair of Steiner Police 10x50, they are very nice except for the fact they're short and a little fat and bulky....but for the price you mentioned thats real good.
“The rifle itself has no moral stature, since it has no will of its own. Naturally, it may be used by evil men for evil purposes, but there are more good men than evil, and while the latter cannot be persuaded to the path of righteousness by propaganda, they can certainly be corrected by good men with rifles.”

I was reading about that model I think it was the c5 version and was curious if the coatings on the glass really make it easier to spot game. Supposedly it makes them kinda "pop" out due to the coatings picking up on the red/brown hues. Can you tell a significant difference between the Steiner Predators vs other brands of similiar quality?
