Hi, I'm Ally. New birder. I would like to buy a pair of used binoculars more powerful than 10*50 in good condition. Please leave me a message if you happen to have a pair that you no longer need.

Thank you very much. :)

I can't help you with an actual pair, but I think you are not looking for the right thing. There are very few birders who use binoculars with greater than 10 x magnification (it gets too shaky with a poor field of view and poor lighting once you go much higher) or with objectives of more than about 45 mm. Probably the most common is 8x42. You can even do quite well with something like 8x32. Quality of the binoculars makes a much bigger difference - I'd recommend getting the best pair of 8x42 or 10x42 (or similar) you can find within your budget.

Hi, Thank you so much for the tip. I went out and compared a few this past weekend, and I will get a pair like you suggested.

Regards,
