I was looking for a pair of compact binoculars that would not sacrifice too much from standard sized binoculars, because I'm going on a trip where I really want to pack lightly and I'm looking to trim as much volume and mass as possible. I am a wildlife watcher with a particular interest in birds, although I am not one of those full-fledged (sorry) birders.
At the binoculars shop, I tried the 8x32 Opticrons as well as some very slightly smaller 8x25 binoculars at about the same cost. While the 8x32 Opticrons are slightly larger and heavier than some of the 8x25 models, you gain a lot of clarity and brightness for only a slight penalty in size and weight. I was hoping to try the Leupold Rogue 8x25 but the owner didn't have any, and he said the Opticrons are far better (granted they cost an extra $100 or so).
My "regular" binoculars are 8x42 Leupold Pinnacles. I took the Leupold and Optricons out on some walks through the woods and the Appalachian mountains, and I found that I liked the Opticrons better because they are so lightweight and easy in the hands, and I felt like I was barely giving up any optical quality. For comparison, the Opticrons are 13.8 oz vs Leupold 8x42 at 22 oz. You might not think a mere 8 oz difference matters so much but it did for me.
Next month I'm going on a trip into the Amazon and I will bring these and update my review afterwards with any additional impressions.
