OK, I've been going out, looking though glasses, asking all types of questions and now... I'm confused. I've pretty much figured out brands but now I'm stuck on the magnification. I'm out in California and I was looking initially at 10 x 42's. I understand that as the magnification goes up, the light gathering goes down. How important is the 10x mag out west? My second option is to get some 8 x 42's and as spotting scope. It will end up weighing more in my pack but it is more versatile. Can I get some input from some folks out west as to what you "really need?" Thanks in advance!
