Swarovski EL Swarovision 8.5x42 Binocular

  • Excerpt: A bright new look for birds I work with a research group doing surveys of west coast raptors. Many of my colleagues have Swarovski binocs or scopes. It seemed that they were always able to identify birds quicker and more accurately than I was.

  • Excerpt: These binoculars are top notch. Crystal clear viewing with full field of vision to the edges. It also gets such great clarity in low light viewing. Used these on a camping trip and they were terrific. A bit expensive, but worth every penny and will last you a lifetime.
  • Pros: Quality Lenses, Strong Construction, Waterproof

Swarovski EL Swarovision 8.5x42 Binocular

RCG, binocularreviews.org
14 August 2014
  • Excerpt: Absolutely breathtaking My Swarovski EL Swarovision 8.5x42 Binoculars were just delivered by FedEx two hours ago. I had only been able to try them and compare them indoors, so the first outdoor use was a revelation. I sat on a balcony overlooking my back yard, and looked at everything in sight. Unbeknownst to me, there is a chipmunk living in a toppled over maple tree just at the edge of my woods.

Exceptional optics and design

  • Excerpt: This is a magnificent pair of binoculars for birding, butterflying, dragonflying, etc. Its the first pair I've bought since the original Bausch & Lomb Elites about 25+ years ago (which still are great, but are worn in a number of ways). I've only had the EL's two weeks, but use them everyday. Optically they are terrific, bright and sharp. The adjustable eyecups are so much better than the roll-down rubber eyecups of the old pair, and the rain guards work beautifully.
  • Pros: Close Focus, Compact, Quality Lenses, Strong Construction, Waterproof, Works Well With Glasses

Best ever

  • Excerpt: Having owned many pairs of binoculars over the years I was ready to take the plunge on a quality pair. I was not disappointed. The bird watching is unbelievable. I could clearly see the dot of an egrets eye across the street from inside the house. The detail is amazing compared to my old Nikons. If you can afford them you won't be disappointed.

Right decision to buy these

Andrew H., Eagle Optics
30 January 2014
  • Summary: I have been looking for a pair of binoculars to replace my 15yo 10x Bausch & Lomb Elites, which had finally seen their better days. For some months I had been going between 8 & 10 x Leica Ultravids and 8.5 and 10 x Swaros. I’ve always used 10x bins. Lots or review reading, and the price difference was significant as well. In the end I went for the Swaros, in large part due to their close focus, which I thought would also add to the depth of field.
