IMHO binoculars are pretty much link lenses the best are very expensive. There are numerous sites that review them and I would go to some of them and see what is the best deal at this time. If you do get a pair thing about a binocular harness it sure makes having them with you and available a lot easier.

Here is a review of the ones I use.

From one of the review sites.
The best binocular reviews cite the high-end Zeiss Victory T* FL binoculars as the best you can buy. Images are superb, bright and clear, and the Zeiss are so comfortable that reviewers say they almost become part of your face. The Zeiss lenses are made of fluorite prism glass, designed to enhance light transmission and color accuracy. At 405 feet, field of view is excellent, and the Zeiss binoculars can focus as close as 6 feet -- good for watching bird feeders and butterflies. The Zeiss binoculars weigh 27.3 ounces. They are waterproof, fogproof and guaranteed for life
