I like them, they are the only ones that I have ever owned over $50, the eye cups can be slighly tempramental, but no big deal. Overall I give them a 9; they are generally known as the best value as most people seem to comment; I would agree with that, no $700 difference to my eyes as I look through the Meopta, Zeiss, etc. Good luck, go try them out and see what you think, it is hard to really try them in a store, seems much more useful to try a buddy's pair in the field when possible.hairy1 said:Huge,
How do you like your monarchs?
I have read all of those reviews for both binos. I just wanted to talk to people that have had some experiences first hand.
