I first bought a pair of Bushnell Sportview 7×35 wide angle binoculars in 1978 when I spent time on lake Umbagog helping document Loons, nests, and hatchlings.
I still have them today and they are still great. I am currently in the market for a new waterproof, lightweight pair for the field but with the great performance
I have had with these over the years, and I am considering Bushnell binoculars again.
I really like the insta-focus because it is quick and can be easily changed one-handed.
