    Javed bro i mentioned in this earlier post that light binoculars are better to carry and use for hunting,But my rifle scopes already got upto 24x zoom so there is no point in carrying around 25x zoom binocular.

    He has suggested 12x25mm binoculars (25mm is the objective diameter, with 12x zoom) as it keeps steady.

    Hi

    I have perused the posts and would comment as follows:

    Unless you are likely to be hunting at dawn or dusk then anything over 40-45mm in objective (front end/second number in the specification) is wasted. 50mm objective lenses maximise light gathering opportunity if you need it, however, the compromise is the additional weight for the benefit.

    Regarding magnification (first number when reading the specification) as said before the higher this is the more difficult it is to hold the binos without 'wobble/shake'. To overcome this you need to use an aid to hold steady - such as 'shooting sticks'. Generally speaking 7-8.5 magnification covers just about most field/hunting use, unless you are out on the plains/in the mountains. An important point to remember is that you may be able to see quarry/a target a long way off but can you place your bullet on it without wounding or capable of making up ground/stalking nearer........

    I use Swarovski 7x42SL binos and will be getting a back-up Zeiss/Swarovski in 10x soon.

    An important fact to note in any optical equipment is the quality of the glass and the coatings on the lenses - in quality optics (both scopes and binos) these will ensure that there is no 'flaring' or optical issues when you look through them. Cheaper optics (Chinese/Phillipino/Taiwan etc) can only compromise.

    As the saying goes 'buy once and cry once'.

    Finally, it is a good idea to match the quality of any scope with your binos - no good seeing a target through the binos and not as clear or clearer when you come into the aim.

    @Loki

    Thanks for the help, this is what many people confuse on the forum; Scope/bino magnification & Obj. Dia.
    E.g if it's 4-12X(zoom)50(obj. dia.) they create confusion by writing 4X12-50.

    Simply do not get confuse Chauhdary sahab And you are quiet knowledgeable in this field.

    @Thanks Loki for explanation.

    Well, We should start a new thread and share our Scopes and Optics with there specifications.
    @Chauhdary, you get up and do this favor. And at the beginning of the thread some basic information would be more nice like parts and there names and usage in short short. I myself get confuse sometime because I am not familiar with scopes much and their usage. Clicks ? And varying the things according to distance etc.

    There are many threads, regarding a particular scope or lengthy copy pasting from internet. If there is one specific which I mentioned above then woud be nice.
    http://www.google.com/search?q=site:...Q&start=0&sa=N

    I always Google if I have to find something on the forum because the forum search engine is not that efficient
    Some of the threads related to scope in the forum
