Spectacular Sharpness

Carlsson vom Dach, B&H Photo
5 December 2012
  • Excerpt: This binoculars present outstanding sharpness, light weight and easy handling. One small drawback is the distortion of the field - look at a distant sign with writing on it and move it from one edge of the field-of-view through the middle to the other side and you'll see how the sign and writing is distorted with apparently different magnifications. Nevertheless. I would buy it again.
  • Pros: Close Focus, Compact, Lightweight
  • Cons: Noticable Field Distortio

  • Excerpt: This product provides sharp vision. However, depending on how you hold the binocular, an area would be blurred. It took me a few practices to get used to the binocular.
  • Pros: Quality Lenses

Nothing Wrong with this Binocular; Extremely Satisfied

Laura Cleveland, Eagle Optics

  • Summary: About a year and a half ago I purchased this binocular, which was well beyond my budget. No regrets whatsoever regarding that! My only problem has been the rubber lens covers coming off from time to time. I understand they are costly to replace! Binocs should come with an extra set in the package. Now I simply leave them off. I want to upgrade to Swarovski's latest and greatest, but that would mean paying the same amount I paid for my current binocular over again.

Fast perfektes Glas mit deutlichem Globuseffekt !

G.S., Amazon
7 March 2012
  • Summary: Der grosse Unterschied in der optischen Leistung zum Vorgängermodell ist laut Swarovski die fast komplette Schärfe, ohne nennenswerte Verzeichnung, bis zum Bildrand. Dazu hat Swarovski eine "Field Flattener" Linse eingebaut. Als ich das neue EL 8,5x42 an einem Testschild ausprobieren konnte, war das schon verblüffend; wirklich ein scharfes Bild bis zum Rande und nur sehr kleine durchgebogenen Linien.
