Overall Best Birding Binoculars

Nikon Superior E 8x32

Wouldn't it be wonderful to own binoculars which weighed less than 12 ounces, fit in your pocket, and yet still provided a satisfying enough view of the bird to substitute for your full sized (or even mid-sized) binoculars, day-in-and-day-out?

Venturer LX 32s

If you have been reading the reviews here at BVD for any length of time, you know that I am a strong advocate for mid-sized binoculars, 8x30-32s, as a primary birding glass. In all most all real-life field birding situations, an exceptional 8x32 will provide all the detail and brightness the human eye can use, and without the burden of weight and the bulk of full-sized glasses. My own birding glass of choice, for several years now, has been the extraordinary 8x32 Nikon Superior E.
