I broke down and bought a new pair of binos last week ,been looking at them for months, got the Steiner Predator 8x30, I got them out in the field last saturday in all types of conditions, rain, fog, low light. thick brush, and big open country, and they are great, worth all $250.00. I've had Nikons, leupolds,and some Cabela's glasses but nothing comes close to these. ,,,300wsm

I have the 8x30 Military & Marine and love them . I bought my wife a pair of 12x40 Predators and they just dont have the clarity as the lower power 8x30's . For comfort size and power the 8x30's are hard to beat .

Grats on some great binocular! I have the Steiner Merlins, 10x42 I absolutely love them.. Took them to Colorado this year and even in 30 below they performed just fine :1106: I like the clarity...

I have had my Steiner Predator 12x40 for about 5 years now. Those things rock!!!! Was looking at Steiner's new stuff at the SHOT show, and it is only getting better!Darren

The other thing I love about Steiners is the autofocus. Makes it so easy to scan an area quicker.Darren

Those auto focus can be a pain in a tree stand trying to look for deer. Seems every time I wanted to look at a buck they'd focus on the tree in front of him and he'd be a blur.

These are not electronic auto focus. The way the porro works is anything over 20 yards away is in focus. Nothing to do on your part. Just the way they design them.Darren
