I will recommend a 8x instead of 10x unless you have steady arms. It is much easier to spot birds and there is not much "motion blur". A 8x monarch is a pretty good "investment". If budget is not a concern, go for one that is waterproof. Like what pp said, test them during poor lighting and you will see the difference between a 2k and "cheapo" bino. Unfortunately, most shops in Singapore do not have good testing grounds.
Don’t peep into a Swaroski scope. You will want to trade your 500mm for it.July 7, 2009 at 2:31 am #293319erictanMember
thanks again… most likely will get a 8X bino then…
$2k is too much for me to pay now, so will get a non-sawasoki one..

Just want to share some info I got about bino from this website.
I’m thinking of going for cheaper alternative like the Bushnell Legend 8×42. Anybody has any experience with this one?July 8, 2009 at 12:16 pm #293510peacefuldoveMember

I’m travelling to Singapore very soon and so I really need your help please
My question is: How much do Nikon Monarch 8×42 (new model) cost to buy in Singapore local shops these days?
and which are to go shopping for them ?
Thank you in advanceDecember 23, 2010 at 3:23 am #333371Fang, Sher ChyetMember
I believe it cast around S$400+/-. You can get them at TK Foto (Funan Centre), Cathay Photo (Peninsular Plaza) or Lords (Lucky Plaza).
