I own a pair of 8x42 APEX Vixens and have found them excellent, really
easy to look through and sharp as well.  They are nitrogen filled
waterproof rubber armoured roof prism models.  Quite a few people have
commented favourably after looking through them.  I'd suggest you check
to see if you can get the 8x ones instead, unless you're a fan of 10x
binos.   They are every bit the equal of the equivalent Nikons, they
retail for around $1000 these days.  I don't know what Zeiss-Jenas are
like, presumably not a match for Zeiss which go for $2000 plus in this
size range.

There are 3-4 Vixen binos that come in the 8/10 x 42 size range, so you
need to find which model they are offering you.  Others may not be up to
the quality of the Apex models.  The APEX have a 10 year warranty on

If you want to try them Bintel in York street Sydney stock them.
