Levenhuk Sherman PLUS 8x42 Binoculars

Low cost 8x42 porro prism binoculars with a good quality and bright image, very wide field of view and plenty of eye-relief.

In my opinion, you are easily getting your money's worth and then some with the Levenhuk Sherman Plus binoculars...

Helios Nitrosport 8x42 Binoculars

These low cost 8x42 Helios binoculars come with a number of features and components that I would not normally expect to find at this price.

This includes phase correction coatings on the prisms, which when combined with the silver mirror coatings and the fully multi-coated optics help deliver a view that I believe is on a par with any other at this price level.

Snypex Knight D-ED 8x42 Binoculars

'New and improved' that is how Snypex highlight their latest version of the Knight ED binoculars, which was developed and improved in response to customer as well as BBR's feedback.

Major changes include upgraded dielectric coatings on the prisms to improve light transmission and thus the brightness and image quality as well as changes to the exterior like a full metal focus wheel that not only works better but brings added class to what was already a great pair of binoculars.

Hawke Endurance ED 8x42 Binoculars

Mid-range binoculars that to my mind offer a level of quality and performance that easily surpasses their price tag.

Highlights include a Magnesium Housing, ED Glass Elements in the Lenses, Phase Corrected BaK-4 prisms, 18mm of eye-relief and a close focus distance of less than 2 meters.

Eschenbach Trophy D 8x42 ED Binoculars

I believe these deliver a superior quality image than the majority at this price level - Not only is the image very bright, with great color reproduction, but these 8x42 Eschenbach binoculars also have an excellent wide field of view that remains sharp right to the edges.

Combine this with a very well made metallic shell, eye-pieces and focus wheel and you have a very high end binocular at what I would say is a very competitive price.

Opticron DBA VHD 10x42 Binoculars

High end Opticron binoculars that incorporate a raft of high end components and features that I believe add up to make an instrument that not only looks and feels the business, but delivers a very high quality view that even the most critical users will appreciate.

Helios Lightwing HR 8x42 ED Binoculars

Eschenbach Arena D+ 10x50 B Binoculars

Mid-priced 50mm binoculars, designed to get you a detailed as well as bright image without costing the earth.

Whilst image quality for me was the major highlight on these Eschenbach binoculars, overall I thought they more than accomplished their remit and are well worth taking a closer look at...

Swarovski EL 8.5x42 Binoculars

By combining the highest quality optical components and coatings with their technical expertise, there is no denying that these Swarovski's produce an image that is unsurpassed.

Add to this their tried and tested exterior and the inclusion of their new FieldPro package and you really do have a special pair of optics.

So If you are looking for the ultimate pair of 42mm binoculars, then you will most certainly not be disappointed with the Swarovski EL 8.5x42 binoculars. These are for me now the reference point and by which all others need to aspire towards.
