From Scott L. in the U.S.:
After reading many reviews and comparing the costs and benefits of buying more expensive binoculars I decided on the Zeiss Terra ED 8x42 Binocular from Eagle Optics.
The binocular's fit and finish are excellent. The rain-guard fits snugly as do the objective lens covers. The binoculars are comfortable in my hands and adjust readily.
The focus wheel turns easily and quickly. I really like that. It even works well when wearing gloves. The optical quality is excellent. They are bright and clear with good contrast. Customer service was excellent, and delivery was quick as promised.
I'm completely happy with my Zeiss Terra ED 8x42.
