Hello all. I am posting to see if anybody has any comments on the Bushnell H20 Porro Prism. I am a casual user and my budget is under $150, so please do not comment on you get what you pay for. Comment on how these compare to others within the price range. The main reason that I am buying these is to spot deer under spotlight, but i will use them for other things as well. Bass Pro is selling these for $99, but I have found a site online that has them at an excellent price of $65 with free shipping. It seems as though it would be hard to pass them up for that price. Does anybody have any comment on these binos? Do you think that a deer at 150 yards under the spotlight would come up clear? Here is a link to Bushnell site for the binos.

Thanks.

The Nikon you posted is well above the price range I posted.  What makes the Zen Ray worth twice the price of the Bushnell I'm looking at?

I guess it's not quite twice the cost, but they are $99 compared to $65.

It's worth the difference if you want to go cheapest you really dont need to ask just price shop. Ive had some of the low end Bushnells and not had them hold up long but I have a Bushnell Elite E2 and its really nice.  The Zen Ray binoculars have gotten really good press for being a good value for the cost.

Those Bushnell's are not up to snuff.
 
You should be able to get quality glass for $150 or less.
 
Here are some other suggestions:
