I have been researching the different types of 7x50 binoculars, and some unanswerable questions have surfaced. I called Steiner and they could not answer the below questions. Steiner makes many versions of the 7x50 bino's. The entire marine, military/marine appear to have the same-coated optics, yet the light transmission varies greatly from 88-97%. Obviously the price is dramatically different btwn models. Can you shed some light on the subject????
I'm active duty Navy and I need a good pair of bino's for use on the ships bridge, must have low light capability and clarity is a must. Having said that price is a major concern. Which version do you recommend???
