Re: binoculars

The draw back of Canon stabilized binos are a very limited field of view and mechanical parts which can wear out over time.

You obviously haven't ever used the Canon 10x42 IS binoculars. The field of view is the widest I've ever seen with ANY binos. If your hands have tremors like mine, they are simply a must. But anyone who has picked mine up and tried them simply say "WOW" as soon as they turn on the image stabilization. You go from seeing a bird to seeing individual feathers. Since their image is almost perfectly still, any movement of animals is much easier to spot, also.

The downside is the $1400 price tag and they are heavy. If you plan to carry both binos and a good camera, I recommend you get an Op-Tech double shoulder harness. You can attach two fairly heavy items to it and hardly feel the weight.
