Gooday all,
Michael Hunter stated:-
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.
