While everyone is on the topic of roof prism binos, I suggest anyone
interested in new binos check out this page: .  It is well put together and the
reference sets he uses are very good glasses.  I recently bought a pair of
Pentax 8x42 DCF WP on their recommendation (best buy in roof prisms) and am
really impressed at the quality of these glasses for around $400.  I have
looked through several pairs of Swarovski, B&L Elites, Leicas and Zeiss
really couldn't see any reason to buy those more expensive binoculars when
the Pentax was a equivalent product at around half the price (or less!).
