This weekend I went shopping for a mid sized binocular in the 8x42 and 10x42 range and compared several brands with various price tag amounts. I looked at Bausch & Lomb, Nikon, Zeiss, Steiner,Swaroski's, and several other brands that I can't remember right now. But one pair really stood out to me because they seemed exceptionally sturdy with a very good glass at a very reasonable price (about $400.00). They were called Brunton Eterna's; I had the oppertunity to try them in outdoor light with decent urban views and they really competed well with all the other binoculars I tried and were better than most. I spent a very long time there adjusting all the different pieces so that they would be adjusted to me. by the way, I have 20/10 vision. But to make a long story short I couldn't justify buying a much more expensive pair so I left to think it over awhile. Has anyone else had any experience with Brunton? How is their costomer service when things break?
