Quote:I believe these are better, optically, than the 20-144x70 zoom binos that started it all. A few drinks from the left side (Vodka) and magically they will self collimate...

Quote:With the known quality of a binocular with that specs, probably the price differences obey to a marketing strategy of the vendors...If someone is naive enough to think a binocular with that specs is a good one, probably that same person may think that the more expensive one is actually better.... so that strategy will atract both people looking for the best of what they don't know a clue of and with money to spend or for the cheaper, people that thinks that at $99 they are getting a bargain...
