Default help looking for binoculars??? suggestions?

I am currently shopping for a new pair of binoculars and I'd like to spend no more than $300 unless i just have to spend more.. Does anyone have any suggestions, I would like a pair that draw in good light in low light conditions. My buddy has a pair that at dark you can still see perfectly clear, any suggestions??

I bought a pair of Minox 8x42 bino's this spring. They are on par with my Leopold Wind River (Japan) 8x42 and Leopold Acadia 10x42 binos. And you can pick up a set for half what your budget is. http://www.cameralandny.com/optics/minox.pl?page=62026

If your near a Bass Pro shops they have a trade in program going on right now where you can bring in some old junk one's for credit towards new one's.

I just bought a pair of Leupold Mojave's 10x42's that I'm realy happy with. Bass Pro had them for $499.99 but Cabela's had them for $339 and BPS match the price then I took another $50 off and got them for $289.99.

I'm REAL happy with them. Another pair I liked was the Nikon Monarch ATB's for $299. The Nikon's were lighter and had better lens covers but the Leupolds held better with the Open bridge design and were crisper.

Hope this helps.

Then just buy the same pair your buddy has.

Ditto on the Zen Ray EDs. They are in a class well above your typical $300-$400 bins. Do a little google search on them and you will see what I am referring to.
