>Compared to Leica 12x50 BN, Leica is brighter, sharper and clearer. And the view is more 3D likes. It can beat the Canon undoubtedly.
So wait. You're telling me that a 50mm diameter objective binocular can outperform a 30mm? How can that be? It's not like the 50's have 20mm more objective or something...Oh wait! They do.
Please make your comparison's between similar products.

I am going to purchase either the 10X30IS or the 12X36IS Canon binocluars. Trying to undersatnd if it is worth the added investment to go with the 12X30IS at 30% more light gathering capability over that of the 10X30IS. Your comments on Roof Prisms ( a negative) used in the 12X36IS leads me to think that the light gathering 30% gain is almost canceled out by the roof prisms and is not worth buying them. I do not know what the adavantage is in going to 12X36IS for such a small gain in light gathering and an added $200.00 expense. Appreciate you comments.
