I have a Minox, too. I was looking at a Pentax and in reviews it was more or less a draw between both. Since the Minox was a bargain, a reduced sale, I took it and I am very happy with it. Awesome bright and sharp. However, would love to have a Pentax too.

@ChrisPlatt What was the issue with you Pentax?

It's a bit sad that there is no review section for binoculars and scopes.

I do counts for Audubon and settled on 8x30 Leica Ultravids a few years ago and love them. At the time you could get them 'certified pre-owned' at a good price reduction. There are so many factors that go into binocular choice. I tend to go for the x30s for small size, light weight, ergonomics and wide field of view. They are easy to hold one-handed. They are also bright for x30's, too, but not the best for eye glasses. Top of the line binoculars have gotten insanely expensive.
