    Doubt that. A lot
    The range of what we think and do is limited by what we fail to notice. And because we fail to notice that we fail to notice, there is little we can do to change; until we notice how failing to notice shapes our thoughts and deeds

    Steiners are not bad.
    The pair I used had individual eyepeice focus that always got changed when hanging round your neck so both always needed adjusting when you pick them up to scan which was an annoyance but glass was pretty good.

    Can vouch for steiner's warranted, bought a second hand pair of safaris at a cash converters in south Africa, discovered the diopter was broken, rep took them back here and sent them away, got a brand new set back, best $50 I have ever spent!

    The new Diamondbacks have improved slightly with the clarity and sleeker style and for under $400 are fantastic... if I do say so myself.
