Some things to consider when looking for a pair of binoculars are:
Size ~ A combination of magnification and aperture (8 x 42 = 8 times closer x 42 diameter of the objective lens in millimeters). The objective lens determines the overall size of the binoculars. The larger the objective lens, the more light gathering capability the binocular has and the better it performs in lower light conditions.
Feel ~ Does the binocular “fit” you. Are they too heavy, too large for your hands, don’t close up enough for narrow set eyes
Eye Relief ~ Do the binoculars have good eye relief. This is important if you wear glasses as some binoculars may not have long enough eye relief which is the distance between your eyes and the binocular lens. For any binocular, there is an ideal distance that your eye should be from the eyepiece. If your eye is farther away from the eyepiece than the eye relief distance, you lose the outer edge of the picture. And the farther away your eye is, the smaller portion of the picture you see.
Close Focus ~ Do the binoculars focus at a small enough minimum distance. Folks who look at butterflies may want a binocular that focuses down to 5 feet.
Waterproof ~ Are the binoculars water resistant or waterproof? Are they nitrogen purged to prevent fogging
Warranty ~ What type of warranty does the binocular have.
