Steiner Commander XP 7x50
16 September 2011
Conclusion: Steiner Commander XP 7x50 is a very interesting optical instrument and, undoubtedly, a pair of binoculars directed at wealthy customers. The company tries to woo them by offering high build quality, German solidity, good optics, long warranty and a very stylish little suitcase in which the binoculars are sold. The binoculars cost less than 1000 Euro so definitely aren’t cheap.
Pros: splendid workmanship,, high transmission,, excellent whiteness rendering,, very well corrected chromatic aberration,, well corrected coma,, low distortion,, slight brightness loss on the edge of the field,, sharp image in most part of the field of view,, excellent quality of antireflective coatings,, perfect blackening inside inner tubes,, long warranty,, rich selection of accessories.
Cons: vignetting prisms, noticeable astigmatism,, a bit too light area near exit pupils.
