    I am/was not in a position to answer, since I have only used 7*50 (and
    7*30) - now also an 8".
    
    However, in the Sep.2003 issue of Sky&Telescope pp.59 and 102 are some nice
    looking 15*70, 15*80, 20*80, 30*80, 25*100 Megaview and Celestron binoculars
    WITH integrated binocular mounts.
    
    Surprising wide field (4.4, 3.3 and 3 degrees) for the Celestron ones and
    (3.5 and 2.3) for the larger MegaView. <$299 to $449 (smallest Celestron not
    quoted).
