    For versatile, image-stabilized operation and clear and bright 12x images look no further than Canon's 12x36 IS III.

With 12x magnification and bright 36mm/1.42 in. objective lenses, the 12x36 IS III are engineered to perform beautifully both indoors and out.

    Me, too. Looks like an expensive alternative to a pair of 10X50s and a tripod. (But still cheaper than a live in dishwasher.)

    I run both ways on this. They are pricey, but if they are all they're cracked up to be, then it could be worth it to some one who doesn't have a quality set of binos. Personally I think everyone should have at least one pair of high quality Binoculars. My go to pair are armored Steiner Safari 12x40's with a Crooked Horn Outfitters Slide and Flex Bino System strap. The binoculars are light (for a large pair of binos) clear and sharp no matter the weather or altitude and have a lifetime repair/replacement policy. This strap system, when adjusted properly keeps the Binoculars from bouncing against my chest when walking/jogging /bending over and provide resistance against my hands/arms when holding the binoculars up for viewing. The result is that the binos don't "wobble" much when viewing for longer periods of time. I highly recommend checking into these straps. On the other end of the scale are the Bushnell 10x25 mini Binoculars that I bought at Sportsman's Warehouse for 14 bux apiece. I have a pair of these in every truck, RV, ATV, pack, BOB and cache we have. They work very well for cheapos, fit almost anywhere so now I have no excuse for not having a pair of binoculars always at hand;)

    Quality Binos are a pleasure to use and a fact of need of operation for me.

    Land's End had a major sell many years ago and I was in the market, so I purchased the Carl Zeiss 7x50B Mariner Armored Binoculars. Later I also popped for a Bino Strap System and when needed they make the Binos more useful. Sometimes you just need to watch that shadow and see what it turns into.
