The 10x42 SLC Binocular from Swarovski combines extra-low dispersion (HD) glass elements and range of proprietary optical coatings with a weather-resistant magnesium alloy housing to create a multi-purpose set of glasses that deliver impressive image quality and durability. This configuration of the SLC displays an immersive 61° apparent viewing angle; a long 16mm eye relief and multi-position twist-up eyecups enable a comfortable viewing distance for almost any observer.

Swarovski uses phase-corrected roof prisms and fully multicoated fluoride-containing HD glass optics in the SLC binocular. Each of the HD lenses is finished with multiple layers of SWAROTOP anti-reflective lens coating. Resulting images transmitted by the optical path are rich with detail and saturated with lifelike color.

In addition to its high-transmission optical system, Swarovski also equips the SLC binocular with a range of features that improve the handling experience of the observer. The geared focus system offers quick and precise focusing with the same focus wheel, permitting the observer to focus from infinity down to 10.5 ft in only two rotations. Covering the magnesium alloy housing are two distinct types of rubber armoring, each providing impact protection and tactile response where they are needed most.

Complementing the HD optics and improved ergonomics of the SLC series binoculars is a nitrogen-filled housing that is air-tight to a depth of 13 ft. Swarovski finishes the exposed lens surfaces with their SWARODUR scratch-resistant and anti-reflective coating, as well as SWAROCLEAN non-stick lens coating, which repels moisture and prevents residue from adhering to the exposed glass. Its premium optics and user-friendly performance make the SLC binocular a reliable optic for most close to mid-range glassing tasks.

10x42 SLC Binocular is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 4.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Even better than the EL's... For hunting. Here me out. I use these for scouting and hunting. Tested against my current Zeiss Conquest 8x42, Nikon Premier, Meopta's, and even the Swarovski EL's. They are the best 10x42 hunting bino made in this category. Swaro may not admit it, but there is NO discernable difference in image quality between the SLC's and EL's in hunting applications. I was told by a SWARO rep, in person, to my face--- That the real quality difference between the two swaro lines is only to be had in close ranges of less than 100 yards. There is extra glass in the EL's, which make them heavier, which is not good for hunting applications. I got to compare both Swaro models side by side in the field before purchasing and will confirm that the edge to edge clarity of both Swaro lines in 10x42 is equal. They are both amazing. I can afford any bino's I want, but for hunting and scouting the SLC's are my choice. This is due to the fact that everything I am scouting/hunting is far beyond 100yds and the SLC's are significantly lighter. Just my opinion.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Less than perfect This was my first pair of high-end binoculars. Excellent color and clarity as one would expect from Swarovski. However, given all I had heard about these binos prior to purchase, I was a bit disappointed with a couple of smaller points. The text on the focus wheel says SLC 10x42 seems hastily and cheaply done - as if someone has just stamped or sprayed it on at the last minute. So maybe not the high quality finish I was expecting. Also the focus wheel pops out to adjust difference between eyes, and I feel as though this is too loose - popping out on accident frequently causing me to change this setting unintentionally. They are nice binoculars, but I almost wish I had gone with a different brand and saved $600-800

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very happy with my purchase Just returned from the first birding trip since I got my new binos.� I was very pleased with the improved optics and usability.� I upgraded from Nikon Monarch 7's (8x42) after trying a friend's Swar. 10x42 binos.� Caution - I use the binos at the minimum interpupillary distance.� If you have unusually close eyes, these may not work for you (need to test them before buying).
