I bought a $300 pair of Minox 10 x 42 a few years ago. They were very good and then inexplicably one of the lugs holding the strap broke. Minox sent me a new pair and they have been excellent and no more broken lugs.
I also have a pair of Pentax in the same price range that are almost as good.
I have taken both pairs to the wet se Asian tropics (the real test for binoculars) and neither got moisture inside.
Sometimes you just get unlucky, if you pay $2000-3000 for a pair of binoculars you might expect flawless performance.
But at least Minox have been good to you even if their products fail.
