Swarovski EL 8.5x42 Swarovision

11 December 2012
  • Conclusion: There is really no need to be overly descriptive in our summary – everybody can see the final score and the position of the tested binoculars in our 8x42 binoculars ranking . This device won hands down with even the most dangerous opponents. If you can afford spending 10,000 PLN for such an instrument you will be satisfied for sure. We tested this pair of binoculars with real pleasure – undoubtedly it is one of the best optical instruments we’ve ever dealt with.
  • Pros: solid, high quality casing which is also very stylish at the same time,, good transmission,, excellent astigmatism correction,, negligible distortion,, very low coma,, sharp images practically to the very edge of the field,, negligible brightness loss on the edge of the field of view,, very good colours rendering,, sharp images already from 1.4 metres,, perfectly circular exit pupils,, perfect darkening inside the tubes,, high quality prisms and coatings.
  • Cons: a bit too light area near the exit pupil.

  • Conclusion: There is no getting around it, the Swarovski 8.5x42 EL Binoculars are not cheap, but you can be sure that you are getting the very best that money can buy and with the lifetime warranty, these may be the last binoculars that you ever need to purchase. At the time of writing they are offered at a cheaper price on Amazon & Eagle Optics (Click to check prices) , than both the Zeiss 8x42 Victory FLLeica 8x42 Ultravid HD binoculars, which is impressive.
