I have a pair of Pentax DCF WP 8x42 Binos ( the ones made by Asahi Optics out of Japan). I’ve had these binos for years and have served me well in the east, and still seem to be a good piece of glass. My archery elk hunt this fall might include more glassing and less dark timber. Do I need to upgrade to something in the 10x50 class? My budget would be 1000 to 1500, but at that price point is my money better spent elsewhere given what I already have? Am I stupid to want to carry a lightweight tripod and use my Pentax on them as glassing bino’s ( is 8x enough power)?
