Even at a dark sky site, there is debate about what is better, with the majority of posts I read favoring the higher magnification given the same objective sizes.

    You did well by picking the one that seemed right in your hands and in front of your eyes. Interesting a 10x50 or 8x40 were not part of the selection list. My 10x50 have decent magnification, but I wish they were higher magnification, if the view was still wide enough to keep me from getting lost in the stars.
    My mistake, they did show me the 10x50 Ultra and 10x60 Mariner. The Mariner was about a 1/2 pound heavier and the Ultra almost a full pound more than the 12x60's I ended up getting. Plus the Ultra were $170.00 more and the Mariner $70.00 more.
