    You can get the 10x42 vortex diamond back for about $380 off trademe, great buying and you won’t regret it! Great warranty and best bang for your buck in my opinion!

    +1 for the vortex diamond backs, awesome value for money can not notice the difference between my mates $1000 leupolds and the diamond backs. Awesome lifetime warranty also.

    I have vanguard ed2s and they might be a little more than your budget but worth a look brilliant clarity and field of view.
    Worth a look $500 a8nt a lot when it comes to binos but it's still more than you wanna throw away.
    Go look at several pairs in your price range and see what works for you.
