Eagle Optics NEW Ranger ED 10x42 Binocular
Great deal for full featured binoculars
I had researched binoculars for some time and this Eagle Optics NEW Ranger ED 10x42 Binocular had all the features of the better binoculars that I wanted. You can read the specifications online--but not all binoculars are ED glass, fully and multi-coated, or have a short close focus. These binoculars do, and they perform well too, with great light gathering and clarity in dim conditions.
The focus knob is precise and easy to use. In addition the twist-up eyecups have detents (minor but nice), and accessories include tethered lens caps, rainguard cover, nice elasticized neck strap and a nice case.
We wanted a 10 power after trying a friend's 10 x 42 Opticron and are very happy after owning 7x and 8x units. The binoculars are fairly compact in dimensions which makes them easy to pack.
I have confirmed features which can be found by research but they are part of the package of these good performing glasses which - to sum up, come at a good price -$339.00 for me and free delivery - when comparing to other models.
I did have a budget and I am very pleased with my choice after a month or so of active use.
