What will you use the binocs for? scanning? details? For details, you'd be better off with a spotting scope, but those need tripods for best effect (the best Swarowski and similar spotting scopes have magnifications 20X to 60X). For scanning, I don't bother. My 400mm lens gives me approximately 8X magnification FF (12.8X crop), OK for scanning.
