The size of the objective lens is the second number in our 8×42 example. The number 42 is the width of the large lens of the binoculars in millimeters. The bigger the number the more light is allowed into the binoculars and in turn this affects the brightness the image being viewed. The brighter the image the better you will be able to see in low light conditions such as early morning or late evening or even cloudy days. A lens diameter of 42mm is a good place to start for a newbie.
The magnification and the field of view are two binocular features that work in opposition to each other. In general, the more powerful binoculars (12 X 50) will have a smaller field of view (290FT/1000YD), while less powerful binoculars (8 X 42) will typically have a wider field of view (380FT/1000YD).
One of the best high end options is Leica binoculars. They make some of the best optics available, offering crystal clear views. They even have models with variable magnification and laser rangefinders. If you’re going to spend the money on a pair of high end binoculars, Leica should be your first choice.

They help me be a witness without disturbing things so much. By the way, maybe someday I will see you out taking a look also. The best to you and your viewing pleasure with a great pair of binoculars.
