What power binoculars - 8x or 10x ?

Just wondering about weight and whether 10x binos are too long and would get in the way. I know Dean had a spotting scope. Is that advisable too or just too much for long treks?

Cheers

I'm trying to determine what binocular zoom to get as well. I've got x12 binoculars but I think they're too powerful. I'm finding that while holding, x12 is difficult to keep steady. Probably have to go weaker. I did have a nice spotting scope but gave it as a Xmas present a couple of years ago before I really got into this subject. Now that I'm yowie field researching I regret giving it away particularly given she who I gave it to doesn't really use it.
