I've been using a pair of Olympus Magellan 7x50s that I picked up several years ago. I've always loved Olympus' optics and these have an internal compass that is really nice if you are sharing the binocs. While you are looking through them if you look down you will see the compass. When you are sharing and trying to point something out you simply say "look at @#&% and voila! They will see it.
