Birdwatching is a great hobby. Yes, some people look at you weird, but those are the same people who don't have the will to try anything new or different. Quality optics make all the difference. It's not the price, it's the value that I get from looking through them.

Also, I do happen to live in a state that has over 300 species of bird throughout the year. So I am not in the middle of Russia or somewhere where there is only like one species of bird.

8x32 same price for those who want lighter and more compact.

Can anyone comment on how 8x32 is versus 8x42? I only have experience bird watching with 8x42.

Any recommendation on the 10x32 for bird watching/for the stadium?

For bird watching definitely the 8x. 10x magnification will be very shaky in the hands rendering the viewing disappointing. 8x42 is the most versatile combination. It also has a wider field of view = more to see.

I ask genuinely and non pejoratively, is $150 worth looking at birds?

For people for whom the is a hobby, yes. Think people who like fishing - what do they spend on tackle? A good quality glass lasts a lifetime and 150$ is an entry level category.

Looking through quality glass is a pleasure, so yes.

Does Adorama have the correct image for the 8x42? Also this would be my first pair, and I doubt I buy another pair for a long long time...would this be good for that? I would use them for miscellaneous things, like during nature walk, hunting, fishing, etc...should I go for the smaller 8x32?

I appreciate the honest answer. You're right. Most people won't try anything new.

Doesn't a fixed lens become a major problem though when you're not at a specific distance from the nest or is it a long camp out type of hobby

I'm heading to Yellowstone in a couple of weeks, and then Alaska cruise next year. Would the 8x42 be the best? Someone said to get 8x mag. So 8x32 vs 8x42?

Can someone compare it with Bushnell Trophy XLT 8x42? It was only $70 last year on Adorama.
