I couldn't think of a better place for the question, and I figure no harm in throwing it out there. I'm an opera fan living in NYC on a rather limited budget, so I frequent Met's Family Circle. I decided to get myself a nice set of binoculars to enhance my viewing experience (won't be watching birds or anything like that since I'm an indoorsy type). I was about to shell out $100 on a compact 6.5x Pentax binoculars, but then I read somewhere that opera glasses are usually 3x-5x. I can't seem to find decent binoculars less than 5x. Has anyone used 6.5x or above for theater-viewing, and would you recommend it?
