I didn't raise the issue of quality. From the research I've done so far, with binoculars, highest quality for $ spent will be of chinese manufacture. I morally don't want to give the chinese any more of my money. I'd rather my money go to places where the political, social and economic system is not at odds with my personal beliefs. I don't buy the story that goods of equal quality are equal goods, or that goods are divorced from the conditions in which they are produced the second they leave the factory.dialex wrote:I'm afraid I'll have to dissapoint you, but many quality binoculars are nowadays made in China.
