I have 8x36 Bushnell Legend HDs (hear me out). The glass is good and the rainguard coating is second to none in the rain. I use them in the timber. In open areas, 12x50 Vortex on a tripod and a Vortex Diamondback 20-60x80 spotting scope.
I use an old pair of reman Stiener Mariners, or a reman pair of Mirturo M-2 8X50s from the 1970s Military! Awesome glass ether one!
I also have a small pair of compact "Opera" Zeiss binos 7x20 and another pair of Mirturo foldable compact "Opera" binos, but 8x35! Amazing glass!
If you guys ever get the chance, Mirturo of Japan make some of the worlds best optics, and yet not many have ever heard of them!
