    I think they were in the 650 $ range, and worth every penny. I have had them for several years now, and hunted with them countless times. I have had no issues at all.

    I have been through several cheaper binoculars that could not hold up to my abuse (probably my fault) and some of them have had collimation problems...in fact many low end binocs leave the factory with collimation problems (objectives don't point in the same direction), and its hard to notice it at the store.

    you might also look at Leica
