What Type of Binoculars is Right for Me?

The short answer is: it depends. That is to say, it depends on what you're planning on using them for. Concerts or sporting events? Bird watching? Stargazing? Travel? Each different use might require slightly different features.

Bird/Nature Watching

Looking to do some bird or nature watching? You'll want to have a modest amount 7x or 8x. Higher magnification might be nice, but you'll have a smaller field of view. Of course, large objective lenses will give you a bright, high resolution image. Depending on the type of outdoor excursions you like taking also consider getting water-, fog-, and/or impact-proof binoculars. Zoom binoculars could be useful for travel and outdoors viewing 
as well.
