Are these binoculars also good for nature/travel?

Asked by: nhnuthouse
These binoculars are good for general observation/magnification of distant objects. Our outdoor series such as the XC and Wildlife XP have specialized lens coatings to offer true color-correct vision and sharpened images.

Why is the model P830 cheaper in price than the MM830? Both have near exact specifications.

Different glass and coatings allowed us to offer a quality product at lower cost for LE applications.

Can we find spare parts (the middle shaft) for a seven year old P830? I am so fond of this binocular to throw away.
