This pricing places most of them, including the 8x42 Knight in my Mid-High Value Binoculars price range, where they will be competing with some other high quality products like the award winning Celestron 8x42 Granite, Celestron Granite 9x33 Binoculars, the Eagle Optics 8x42 Ranger ED and the Hawke Sapphire ED 8x42, Pentax 9x42 DCF BR, Vortex 8x42 Viper HD and the Vanguard 10x42 Endeavor ED binoculars.
