Like a lot of things, it pays to buy the best binoculars you can afford, in
particular WATERPROOF ones, but not the yachtsmans type with individual
eyepiece focussing, central focussing is a lot easier.
I currently use a pair of binoculars with individual eyepiece focussing,
Fielder Mono-body 7x35. While I admit that it took a short time to adjust
and adapt to this style of focussing after using standard central focussing,
I'm more than satisfied with these glasses and experience no problem in
quickly focussing on birds. I have been using these glasses for 10+ years
and the image provided is as clear as the day I purchased them.
The added advantage especially if you live in a high humidity areas is the
fact that the glasses are completely sealed and usually filled with an inert
gas such as Nitrogen. The individual eyepiece focussing is the only method
that will allow the glasses to be completely sealed.
I suppose each to their own, but at least give them a go.
