Value is the theme of the 2011 class of binoculars. I don't recall a year in which hunters have had such a robust selection of very good field glasses in the $200-$300 range. Even binoculars originating in China – previously the lowest rung on the quality ladder – are competing very favorably with optics manufactured in Japan and the United States. Here's our breakdown of the newest binoculars. The first 12 are full-size binos ranked in order from strongest to weakest. The next four are mid-size binoculars also ranked in order from strongest to weakest.
