The Observer series is designed for versatile use to match any situation under all conditions. Two full sized models in a lightweight design provide comfortable ergonomics for long-term observation, bright images, crisp resolution and a wide field of view. No other binocular gets you so close with such clear, sharp detail, for so little.

The 8x42 is an all-round binocular. Lightweight with bright images until twilight.


STEINER High-Contrast-Optics provide bright, brilliant views, accurate colour and clear images with high contour sharpness for exceptional performance up to a close range of 2m.

Fast-Close-Focus central focussing wheel requires minimal, stepless rotation for quick absolute sharpness from close-up to infinity. Comfortable and easy to use.

Outstanding Ruggedness with durable polycarbonate Makrolon housing, temperature range between -15°C to +55°C. Non-slip NBR-Longlife rubber armour protection resists oil, acid or adverse weather.

Ergonomic Design with rubber armoured protruding controls providing comfortable and silent observations with effective sound absorption.

Cylindric rotation eyecups made of soft, skin-friendly and non-aging silicone.

Lightweight roof-prism design has less bulk to stay out of the way while observing.
