Does anyone know anything about these. They seem to be comparable to the 150-200 dollar binoculars. The main thing I am looking for is water and fog proof. http://www.cabelas.com/cabelas/en/template....jpg&hasJS=true (http://www.cabelas.com/cabelas/en/templates/product/standard-item.jhtml?id=0022060711806a&navAction=jump&navCount=2&indexId=cat20752&podId=0022060&catalogCode=2UD&parentId=cat20752&parentType=index&rid=&cmCat=MainCatcat20712&_DARGS=%2Fcabelas%2Fen%2Fcommon%2Fcatalog%2Fitem-link.jhtml.2_A&_DAV=http%3A%2F%2Fa1460.g.akamai.net%2Ff%2F1460%2F 1339%2F6h%2Fwww.cabelas.com%2Fcabelas%2Fen%2Fconte nt%2FPod%2F02%2F20%2F60%2Fp022060ii01.jpg&hasJS=true)

Are these a good buy?

I needed a new pair of binocs so I did my research on what to look for. After I found that out, I realized that I could not afford any. What I did buy are the Barksa that you mention and I am very pleased. My research told me that for good low light viewing to divide the power into the MM and it should be 4 or better to have good low light viewing. That number for the Barska would be 4.2 and I can say that when I could no longer see with my eyes, I could continue to see detail of branches and leaves at 100 yardswith these binocs. The other items that my research showed was to have roof prism BAK-4 lenses, which the Barska has. I know that they are not as good as a 400 dollar pair of Nikon, but for the price I don't think they can be beat. As far as fog and waterproof, I did use mine in the rain this year with no problems noticed.

Thank you for your answer. I don't want to spend a ton, but have wasted plenty on cheap binoculars and don't want to do it again. I will go with these.
