One word-Stabilized
In reply to mironv, Feb 11, 2012

I have owned several high end scopes and binoculars. Since getting a pair of Canon IS that is all we use. Without IS, 10X will be too shaky. I like a 10x stabilized and or 12x (but which is noticeably heavier.) They provide the stability equivalent to a tripod. No amount of expensive optics can equal the viewing of these instruments. It is like being able to carry a scope and tripod in the field. I admit that traditionalists need to have Swarovskis. If they are 8x or under you can hold them reasonably steady, but with IS you can go to 10x and 12x or more and get a much larger stable image. I have had been using them almost daily for about 5 years with no issues. I am spotting things that others are missing. Without the jitters the viewing is so much more pleasant.
