German Precision Optics (GPO), USA has just added two new 56mm models to their Passion series of binoculars.

Superior Low Light Ability

Available in either an 8x56 or a 10x56 configurations, the Passion series is aimed at the hunter, wildlife enthusiast or birder looking for a very high-quality instrument with superior light gathering ability.

As well as the large 56mm lenses that are able to capture more light than smaller alternatives, light transmission is an important factor and will remain very high on these models as they use the same GPObright anti-reflection lens coatings as that which GPO use on their flagship Passion HD instruments which include the incredible GPO Passion HD 10x42 Binoculars, the BBR Binocular of the Year 2019

This long with an Abbe-Koenig roof prism system and very large exit pupils (8x56 = 7mm and 10x56 = 5.6mm) and twilight factors exceeding 20, both of these binoculars are sure to offer supremely bright images even in very low light conditions.

“We built these binoculars specifically for those users who need the highest transmission, low-light performance binoculars available on the market,” “With 93 percent light transmission, these binoculars deliver exactly what they need.”

Michael Jensen, owner/CEO GPO USA

56mm GPO Passion Binoculars

Both the 8x56 and 10x56 GPO Passion binoculars use very high-end magnesium chassis that are tough as well as lightweight (in the 56mm size class)

Model FOV Eye Relief Min Focus Weight Length
8x56 389ft 19mm 8.2ft 40.9oz 7.5in
10x56 352ft 16mm 9.8ft 41.3oz 7.5in

Wide FOV
A real highlight for me in terms of their main specifications is the very wide field-of-view that both of these configurations offer.

This is important in many situations, but especially at closer ranges where it allows the user to lock onto and then follow subjects far easier and thus often more quickly.

Other Highlights
As you would expect at this level GPO Passion binoculars are fully waterproof, nitrogen-purged, rubber-armored and are tripod adaptable.

The new Passion binoculars and indeed all the other models are built to the highest standards, in the same factories as other top European brands.

I also really like the fact that they incorporate aluminum eyepiece housings into the design. Not as lightweight as the plastic polycarbonate ones used on many binoculars, these are far more durable and as this is the part on a binocular that get damaged most often when dropped, this is really important.

Like all GPO binoculars, these come with GPO’s Lifetime Warranty for peace of mind.

Accessories include a custom molded hard carry case, neoprene neck strap, objective and ocular lens covers and cleaning cloth.

Prices & Where to Buy

The RRP for these GPO Passion binoculars is $699.99 for the 8x56 model and $749.99 for the 10x56. For current prices in your country, be sure to check the link below
