Need Recommendations for Good, Solid binoculars

Any info or recommendations for a good set would be great. I seem to keep knocking my eyepieces out of whack no matter how careful I am. I see there are some models that have onepiece eye reticles. I saw a set of Bushnells with these and wonder how that system works over the standard sets with the eyepieces seperate. I would like a set that can see far and easy to adjust quickly. Again and experience from anyone would be very helpful.
Thanks.

Need Recommendations for Good, Solid binoculars

I've got a pair of Nikon 10X42 Monarch ATBs I love. They're bright, sharp, easy to use, and super to work with. IMO, they're a great buy in the $300-350 range. I've used less, but nothing that pops into a sharp edge-edge picture the way the Nikons do. I'm sure there are others higher up the scale that would be better, but I haven't reached that point of addiction yet.

Nikons are good but you can't go wrong with Leupolds either. Bushnell's customer service is top notch for me.

I recommend the Bushnell Powerview 10x50. It's the best all-around value.

I use to have a pair of Nikon 10X42 Monarch ATBs and they were great I later upgraded to the Swarovski EL's, but the Nikons are really good binos for the money. I would not rule out Vortex either good glass and there warranty alone makes them worth the money.

I recently "stole" a pair of Zeiss Conquests from gr8tfuldoug. Nice glasses.
