Numerous GREAT binos in that price range. Zeiss, Steiner, Leupold, Nikon, Vortex. Most all with LIFETIME warranty. Sales all over the net. Size you are looking for is big factor. Vortex tough to beat for the money and great warranty that is fully transferable.
Look into MidwayUSA. Have HUGE selection and good prices.
+1 on the Diamondbacks. I borrowed a friend's set of Monarchs to take out west last year, then bought the Diamondbacks on Black Friday. The Nikons were good, but they don't hold a candle to the Vortex, IMO.

3-400 if possible...wouldnt mind spending a little more if the increase in quality is worth the increase in price.
Also obviously wouldn't mind going below that price too
You can get something decent in that price range.I'd go some place where you can look through a bunch before making a decision.I have a pair of Leupold wind river cascades that I feel naked without.They were less than $300.I went with them even though I was prepared to pay much more.
