 has anybody had any experience with the Leica 12 X 50's? 

 Yep, they are great performers provided you have lots of money to pay for
them, and a trailer large enough for them, a tripod, and a wheelbarrow. The
wheelbarrow is for carrying them once you leave your car - either that or
you'll forever walk with a bad case of granny's stoop.  Get the 10x42s -
wonderful glasses.
Another suggestion for managing the 12x50s is buy a ride-on golf buggy and
hire a caddy.

  There's nothing quite like the feeling of seeing a new bird is there?
