One site with lots of links I like is:

http://www.pacificsites.com/~brooke/Binos.shtml

Folks interested in what size astro binos to try might want to click on the links at that site titled Binocular Performance and Holding Index. Here's the direct link to the magnification chart:

I've found it to be a pretty good guide, but it's based on a very dark sky ideal site. But even from light polluted suburbia, the rough comparisons hold up.
