The Olympus 10x42 Pathfinder Binocular provides premium-level porro prism performance at an attractive price. It is chock full of good features: high index BaK-4 porro prisms, fully multicoated optics with aspherical lenses, fantastic ergonomics enveloped by rubber armor, and long eye relief. It is a great choice for a birder or big game hunter, and also makes for a practical stadium sports viewer. This 10x model, with its 42mm objective lenses, is a great twilight viewer that also provides a more magnified, distinctly larger subject than the usual 7-8x designation.
