Eagle Optics NEW Ranger ED 8x42 Binocular

EO Never Fails to Impress


I have spent many years viewing wildlife, either for personal enjoyment or as my time as a Wildlife Biologist. I first got a taste of EO with the original Ranger 8X42 binoculars in an Ornithology class in college. Needless to say I was hooked.

A few years later I got to use a pair of EO Denali 8X42s on a Sharp-tailed Grouse research program. Thus it took only a short time to wait until the came out. I got a pair right away and have never looked back.

Compared to other optics in this price range (Leupold BX-2 Cascades, Vortex Viper, and Zeiss Terra ED) these are exceptionally bright. It never seems like there is too little of light looking for birds early in the morning. These binoculars are extremely comfortable and the focus wheel is 'grippy' and has just the right 'tension' that allows for quick but then subtle focusing.

I know this optic will keep me viewing crystal clear wildlife for years to come (until I decide to drop even more money for another EO product).
