Summary: I stepped up on my price range to get these, plus on sale so was like only live once. Well worth the investment. If it had a flaw I would say just a little heavy, but everything you look at is right there in front of you and crisp. Low light was 100 times better then I could imagine. Worth the buy in my opinion. Real person here no bot.
Summary: 8x42 predators are well-built (heavier than my prior leupold acadias). I like the rubber eye flanges that prevent light from reaching your eye from the sides - this seems to help in low light situations. They flip forward and out of the way for eyeglasses. The brown tone "high-light" feature for better pick up of hair/fur in low-light situations really does work well.
Summary: After a lot of searching I went with the Steiner predator extreme in 10x42. They seem to be clear but have a problem with blacking out if not held at the best angle.To me this is a sign of a cheaper Binoucular thought I was getting a deal should have paid more and gotten better Quality.
Summary: This is my 4th pair of Steiner’s and I have yet to have one fail or need repair and the way we hunt that’s saying something. I upgraded from the 10x to 12x…what a difference if you looking at anything over 500 yards and at 1,000 yards you’re the man, I’m comparing these against the non-center focus top of the line German glass which all my hunting buddies use.
Summary: These binoculars are awsome! They are more then I ever expected them to be. They are extremly clear, powerful, light weight and easily adjusted and the built-in range-finding reticle allows rapid aquirement and ranging of targets.
Summary: I purchased these binoculars in the 10x42 model. Although, I was quite skeptical of the optimization for higher contrast and light transmission to create distinctiveness between prey and their surroundings, I was highly impressed. I cannot stress enough the aforementioned and how much it truly is noteworthy. Although the description states “lightweight” they seem to feel rather weighty.
