I am just looking for some opinions/advice on the Leupold Binoculars. I am looking into buying some and want to get some discussion on the Pinnacle Vs. the Olympic models.

There are some good binoc sites out there - mostly birders and astronomical, but lots of good info on what to look for in binocs, as well as various discussions and reviews:

A lot will depend on what size you want and what your budget is.

I have an older pair of Leupold 10x50 binocs - the equivalent of their current bottom-end Mesa line - and they're good, but nothing special.
