Im sure we all had that pair of binoculars that was just great in so many ways that stuck with you as a special pair. For one reason or another you decided to part with it, and probably replaced it with another hopefully better pair. Still the effect the old one left on you did not loose its weight. You wish you had it back.
Im still fairly "green" in this hobby but I do love the Monarch 5 16x56 and Monarch 7 10x42 for their comfort/ease of use, and images they output that were just pleasure on the eyes with very organic warm look while being very clear and sharp overall. I replaced 16x56 with Canon 18x50IS, and 10x42 with 10x42 Monarch HG. I might get a Monarch 7 10x42 again at some point if I get it for a very good deal, and never let go again. Prices are getting lower, and a smaller wide angle 10x is just a great tool and companion. I spent many hours comparing it to my Monarch HG and I feel like I could do it all over again. Maybe not the most exotic case for this topic, but its what I got and cherish. I am grateful I could afford them.
What about you? What is the bino that you wish you did not get rid of and would more than welcome it back? What did you replace it with?
