Quote:I'm going to treat myself to a pair of IS binocs and I'm hoping to hear a consensus on recommendations.Currently I use 8 X 40 Regals, which I like a lot, but more magnification would make me a happy guy. Because of limited upper body strength I want to avoid very large, heavy options.Thanks in advance!
