After detailed comparisons at the big sporting good stores for optics, features, performances and values, I kept coming back to these mid-range Leupold BX-2 Cascade 10X42 Binoculars. On the net, there are high consumer reviews praising the benefits these little binocs offer. I found the small size, lighter weight, excellent edge-to-edge clarity, tact sharpness (with great DOF), superb build quality and great dollar value too much to ignore! For the investment, these BX-2's really are overall an Excellent buy and outperform competition at sometimes 2-3x their purchase price!
Their ergonomic design fits extremely well in my hands and provides quick and precise easy adjustments. I found my BX-2's also are excellent in very low light conditions, pulling in details and light beyond my seeing abilities...Ready for the Deer Hunt. At the range, we were able to compare the BX-2's to a $1,600 pair of Swarovski 10X42's. We were all blown away at just how close in optical performance and clarity these were to a very respectable, 5x the price professional binocular...Wow!
With a lifetime warranty and the Leupold reputation for fine quality optics, I expect to pass down my used BX-2's, still in perfect condition!
Good binocular for the price range

Leupold is a great company. I received a pair of original Leupold Cascades from a relative. When they came out of alignment from hard use, Leupold sent me a new pair. That was over 7 years ago. The binocular is fairly clear and crisp in the middle of the viewing area. I have no problem using them in sage brush valleys and atop high peaks. They work good for birding, albeit with some color aberration, and perfect for the abuse of hunting. I would have no problem purchasing Leupold products, especially knowing the warranty they carry.

Received these binoculars just prior to the Minnesota deer opener.I used these for the 9 days and they hardly ever left my hand. They worked really well under low light conditions,lightweight for carrying out in the field. For the money I feel that these are a very good deal. They did not let me down for the 2012 deer season.
