Default Minox BD 10x42 BR or BL 8x42 BR Binoculars

Alright, I've got two pairs of binos and only need one. They're both very nice, and I can't pick, so I'm putting them both up for sale.

The BD 10x42 BR's are Minox's top of the line model from a couple of years ago. They have some use, but the lenses and coatings are still in good condition. They're also still watertight. I left them on the bathroom sink with the shower running on hot and the door closed for half an hour and they were fine. You can find more info here: http://www.eagleoptics.com/index.asp?pid=5123

The BL 8x42 BR's are nearly new. I literally took them out of the box, looked through them for comparison, and put them back exactly as they came packaged. You can find more info on them here: http://www.eagleoptics.com/index.asp?pid=4640

Basically, the 10x42's are higher quality and a little heavier, which seems to make up for the brightness and steadyness differences inherent when comparing 10x42's and 8x42's. Minox is, or used to be(can't remember which), a division of Leica, so these are quality optics. I've looked through all the top end models at Sportsman's Warehouse, and from what little comparison I could make indoors, the only bino's I liked better than either of these were the Swarovski EL's.
I'd like to get $275 shipped for the BL 8x42 BR's, or $325 shipped for the BD 10x42 BR's. Send me a PM, or email me at [email protected] Thanks!
